Description

End-of-terrace three-bay two-storey house, built c.1840. One of a pair with the building to the west.

Roughcast rendered at first floor over smooth rendered ground floor, separated by projecting string course. Square-headed window openings with cut stone sills, rendered reveals and replacement windows. Plain round-headed stone doorcase to western end bay with timber panelled door with spoked fanlight over. Set back from footpath with tiled and cement paving to forecourt. Located to the east end of Kilbeggan.

Appraisal

An attractive, modestly-scaled house, which retains its early character. Simple in design, it is typical of houses built at this time throughout Ireland. It retains much of its original fabric including a well executed, if simple, cut stone doorcase with spoke fanlight over. This building forms part of a handsome pair of buildings with the structure to the west (15321047), and adds significantly to the historic streetscape of Kilbeggan.
