Possibly the finest building in the park, the wonderful example of a classically designed residence was built on an axis with the Hibernian Military School (St Mary’s Hospital) in 1836. The recessed doorway flanked by columns is perfectly detailed and proportioned, and the entire building has impeccable workmanship.
