Appraisal

A substantial detached early twentieth-century house, which retains its early form and character. Prominently sited, this building makes a strong positive contribution to the streetscape of Mullingar. This building is distinguished by the good quality doorcase and by the retention of the multipane timber casement windows. It is of a type that is unusual in Westmeath and its adds variety to the predominately ecclesiastical and institutional character of the buildings to the north end of Mullingar.
