That house has a very pleasant setting and looks well designed of its time.

Regarding windows it is impossible to tell from the distance of the photo as to what would have been exactly correct in terms of glazing pattern but I would advise against UPVc grained effect for two reasons, firstly PVc windows of any description do not have the lifespan of timber windows, you could expect 20-30 years maximum and grained PVc is not exactly dirt cheap, whereas with timber windows you could with proper maintanence expect a much longer life span. Secondly grained effect traditional windows would have been rare and those that were grained would have had a much wider grain pattern than the PVc imitation teak grain which is extremely narrow in appearance.

For the design of the windows you could visit the National Museum Of Agriculture And Rural Life at Johnstown
Co Wexford.

How to get there from Wexford:
Take the Rosslare road out of Wexford. Take the first turning to the right, which is signposted for Johnstown Castle. From Dublin (via N11), Cork (N25) or Rosslare take the Wexford-Rosslare bypass (N25) to the T Junction signposted for Johnstown Castle.
