Statement of Interest

NOTES: Formerly listed as Cullalo Policies South Gate-Lodge. B-group with Cullaloe Farmhouse, Cullaloe Lodge, Cullaloe Tower and Cullaloe Temple. The lodge was probably built at the same time the bold classical garden block was erected to the SE of the farmhouse, forming a suitable entrance to the aggrandised house and designed landscape surrounding. Although the lodge when built would have only consisted of 2 rooms its detailing is very fine, at some later date in the 19th century the lodge was extended doubling its size with the addition to the SW. The roadside elevation of the addition was completely blank so not as to detract from the classical appearance of the original lodge. At some further later date in the 19th century a window was inserted between the 2 buildings, the presence of the quoins to the right side of the 19th century addition suggest that the buildings were joined further back and that the recess was filled-in at some later date. In the late 20th century the lodge has been dramatically enlarged to the rear with a number of single storey extensions. The wall and gatepiers to the right of the SE elevation are modern replacements as the lodge is situated near a tight bend in the road, a number of cars in recent years have crashed into the wall and gatepiers damaging them (2002).
