Creacon, County Wexford, an exceptionally tall and broad strong farmer’s house dating from the mid-18th century. Of three storeys over raised basement, Creacon has five bays with the rendered facade centred on a simple Gibbsian limestone door approached by a flight of steps. A pleasure to find a house of this calibre still in use and well-maintained.
Looks like an illustration from Maurice Craig,s book
Very like the small landowners’ houses of the same date in north-eastern Scotland.
What a handsome house!
Lovely in its simplicity. Interesting that some of the windows have horns. Only one of the three shown on the first floor (on extreme right, with heavier glazing bars) has them and they are different to those on the ground floor.
Delightful, any chance of interior pictures.
Sadly not on this occasion (the owner wasn’t at home…)
