Lisnaskea is a neighbouring town full of wonderful Thursday Doors waiting to be included in my blog posts. This must be the nicest Chinese restaurant I’ve seen yet, at least from the outside. I love the stonework and design, as it’s very much in keeping with the historical architecture throughout this lovely county Fermanagh town.
Next to this building is a lovely old Victorian house, a Grade B listed stone dwelling, built in the 1800’s. It has six bedrooms plus an annex. Do I know that because I had a tour of the place? No, unfortunately I didn’t get to see the inside but I did find a link to an estate agent’s site, as the house was up for sale some time ago. The photos have been taken down now because it was sold but from my virtual tour I could tell it had once been a tastefully decorated home. Hopefully it will be brought back to its former glory by the new owners.
It also has a charming little greenhouse attached.
At the rear of the main building you can see what may have been a coach house and servants quarters, back in the day.
Here’s what it looked like in the early 1900’s with a dry stone wall and a lot more shrubbery in the foreground:
I’m really looking forward to walking around Lisnaskea in search of some interesting doors and hopefully I’ll dig up a bit of history along the way. Thank you for stopping by this week. Norm has a very nice selection of Thursday Doors over on his blog, well worth checking out.
