Appraisal

An attractive early nineteenth-century house, which retains its early form and character. This appealing building dates to a period of relatively prosperity in Kilbeggan (early nineteenth-century) and was probably constructed by a local merchant. The fine cut stone doorcase is an important survival, which helps enlivens the front fa├žade and gives this building a strong presence in the streetscape.
