This townhouse became an object of wonder in 1912 in the town of Tuam. But what was the intrigue of this house at the time?


Quite simply its architect, Anthony Scott, had given it a front garden! Up until that time, almost all the houses in Tuam had been built right on to the footpath. 

In the past, it was believed that having a lawn was said to “have had a dramatic effect on the streetscape” which is why townhouses had no front lawns, until this house broke the mold.
