Appraisal

An interesting early nineteenth-century house which retains its early form and character despite recent alterations. The retention of the early doorcase is a noteworthy feature of the streetscape of Kilbeggan. The layout of the windows suggests that this appealing house originally had tripartite sash windows. This houses dates to a period when the local economy was flourishing and is an attractive addition to the streetscape of Kilbeggan.
