Previous Name :
Description : Large site for a sizeable plain 18th century five-bay two-storey house. Set on high ground, overlooking Dunfanaghy Bay. Small scale development has taken place along eastern drive. House now derelict and gate lodge unrecognisable. Some mature trees remain. May McClintock described in 2005 that ".the walled garden, with walls still intact, has long been neglected. The shrubs, main griselinia, are now grown to a height comparable to the height of a conifer." This site no longer constitutes an historic garden, demesne or ornamental landscape of particular interest.
