Virginia Road Station is an important collection of nineteenth-century buildings associated with the Oldcastle branch line of the Dublin & Drogheda Railway. This distinctive astylar classical station master’s house is attributed to the Victorian architect John Skipton Mulvany and is a protected structure. After a long period of disuse the building had fallen into disrepair and a series of modern asbestos clad sheds attached to the building seriously disfigured the appearance. Despite this the historic fabric of the building, including the interiors, remained quite intact. We were engaged to advise on essential conservative repair and refurbishment of the building for residential use.
