Appraisal

This impressive classical gate lodge is likely to have replaced a simpler Georgian lodge and to date from the extension of the existing house at Modreeny carried out in the mid-nineteenth century. The ashlar stonework of the breakfront is of a high standard and the original character of the building remains, despite the replacement of several windows with uPVC.
