Description
Detached nine-bay two-storey Palladian style mansion, built in 1797 to designs by Whitmore Davis, with three-storey pedimented breakfront. The walls are faced in ashlar with the ground floor level of the breakfront rusticated and the pediment carried on four engaged Ionic columns. The roof is hidden by a parapet. The entrance is topped with a pediment and the windows are a mixture of flat and semi-circular headed. The house is set within an extensive demesne.

Appraisal

Impressive Palladian mansion of the 1790s with a façade inspired by that of Lucan House in County Dublin.
