Grade B2 Listed House, 1800 - 1819
Warrenpoint, Narrow Water Castle Estate, Co. Down, Northern Ireland
The Garden House, with the walled garden, forms part of the overall Narrow Water Castle 1707s estate grouping. We have been advising on series of repairs and internal decoration to this picturesque building. This two-storey/ three-bay gardener’s house is located within a walled garden covering 2.3 acres. It has a hipped natural slate roof with advanced eaves and exposed timber rafter tails carrying half-round cast-iron rainwater goods. Rendered granite coped chimney to each end elevation. Walls are dry dashed with stepped stucco quoins. There are original sash windows throughout the house and an octagonal painted masonry opening containing a picturesque quatrefoil window. The porch of the house has a decorative fretted 19thC timber bargeboard and decorative finial. The front door is four-panelled and bolection-moulded. It has a transom with rounded top corners and two paned round-headed sidelights which rise to flank the transom.
Work in progress.
