Appraisal

This building is a colourful addition in the streetscape, due to brick and ashlar architectural details which were used in its construction. The red brick walls are enlivened by the yellow brick, vitrified brick and limestone chevron courses. The building retains many original features and materials, such as the timber sash windows, slate roof and ridge cresting. It was formerly the rent office of Headfort demesne.
