Four newly restored heritage glasshouses at Ardgillan Demesne have just been completed by Oldstone Conservation and are now open to the public.
Two of the glasshouses (Propogation House & The Large Conservatory) were originally located at the Jameson Estate in Seamount, Malahide, the glasshouses were carefully dismantled from the Jameson Estate in the early 1990s by Fingal County Council after they were kindly donated by the Treacy family. These date from the 1880s and were designed and constructed by the famous Scottish glasshouse company, Mackenzie and Moncur.
Two smaller glasshouses in the MacKenzie Moncur style were constructed in the corners of the walled garden.
All of the glasshouses have been fitted with state of the art electrical fittings and provision for irrigation.
de Blacam and Meagher were the lead Architect and a special mention for Lambstonge who were responsible for the joinery and metal work which was such an important part of the restoration project.
