Architect: Leuventhen

youghal-redhouse

Designed by the Dutch architect and builder Leuventhen, it was completed between 1703 and 1710 (dates vary) for the Uniacke family using imported red bricks as the quality of local brick was seen as inferior. It is a rare survival in Ireland of an early 18c brick built town house. An impressive example of Dutch domestic architecture of the baroque William and Mary style.
