A Little Gem

A dear little former glebe house in Killincoole, County Louth. Dating from c.1800, the building’s design is attributed to Francis Johnston who was then involved in a number of other projects in this part of the country. Of two storeys over basement, the house has a pronounced projecting gabled central bay featuring the main entrance, a square-headed limestone doorcase approached via a short flight of stone steps with cast-iron rails to either side.

    I could see myself going up those steps in a flowing gown. Time for afternoon tea . Graceful looking home isn’t it . I hope it was and IS well loved.
