Estate Managers House, Moynalty


Curraghtown is a late-Victorian villa which served as the estate manager’s house associated with the Nicholson estate and was designed in 1875 by Alexander MacAlister, a leading Belfast architect. We advised on the conservation and restoration of the house, stables, entrance gates and park railings including the conservation of the original Portland cement stucco to the facades. A previously demolished entrance porch was re-built to a new classical design in traditional solid masonry construction and embellished with stucco ornamentation in keeping with yet subtly distinguished from the original architectural details in accordance with conservation principles.
