Appraisal

A substantial and well-proportioned house of mid-to-late nineteenth-century appearance, which retains its early form, character and a great deal of its early fabric. This building has the character and feel of a parochial house dating from the same period. This attractive ivy-clad building makes a positive contribution to the built environment at Killucan, occupying extensive mature grounds to the north end of the village. The simple but quality gates add incident to the roadscape and complete the setting of this good quality composition.
