Appraisal

Ardnacrena is a unique Edwardian house which retains its original features and character and displays many architectural details favoured during this period, including the irregular facade compositions, varying window types with small panes and leaded glass, and in particular the Art Nouveau influenced main entrance door. It has been excellently maintained and demonstrates a high quality of construction and craftsmanship.
