Important 17th century house now roofless but mostly complete
to wall-head. Unusual plan, not all of one build. Rectangular
central block with long walls to N and S gables to E and W,
projecting wings at end bays with gable heads to S (that to
W being shorter), projecting wing (possibly stair tower) to
centre of N wall. To S a single storey outbuilding adjoins
the SE tower which probably originally formed part of a
courtyard wall enclosing the S side of the house.
2 storeys and attics, rubble walling, squared quoins. The
RCAHMS Inventory gives the main block and SE wing as being
original, with the SW tower and the N wing as later
The main entrance is centrally placed to the S elevation and
is flanked by generously proportioned windows, all
roll-moulded with thick section mouldings. Most other
openings are roll-moulded or chamfered, a good number of the roll-mouldings have been reused. There is a roll-moulded
chimneypiece to ground with corbel stones supporting lintel,
otherwise few internal features survive. Stacks to gable
heads, gables with remains of kneeler skewputts.
Single storey rubble outbuilding abutting SE tower with to
the S wall a rubble voussoired round-arched fireplace
(possibly earlier cooking hearth) converted in 19th century
to house brick-lined 2-oven kiln fireproof roof (partly
fallen) to this section with metal angle-irons supporting
large slates. The purpose of the small kiln is not known.
