Description

Detached four-bay single-storey thatched house, built c.1800, with lobby-entry plan. Pitched oaten straw roof with decorative knotting and exposed scolloping to ridge and twine to eaves. Low rendered chimneystack. Rendered stone walls. Former outbuilding with stone walls and pitched slate roof incorporated into house to form L-plan. Large extension to full length of rear of house with flat corrugated-iron roof. Timber sash windows. Windbreak with gabled thatched canopy with timber panelled and glazed door. Garden to front with rendered wall and piers and wrought-iron gates to road boundary. Outbuildings to site with pitched slate roofs and rendered walls.

Appraisal

This well-kept thatched house is prominently sited on the Tullamore-Daingean road. Its gabled windbreak is distinctive, the incorporation of a former outbuilding is relatively unusual. The retention of its thatched roof and of timber sash windows contribute greatly to the character of the house.
