This Arts and Crafts inspired house has a striking design, which forms a marked contrast with the typical architecture of Greenore. Built as holiday accommodation, it was situated close to the golf course to maximize its leisure potential. Its plan is enhanced by the medley of features, many of which are unique to these houses, forming an aesthetically-pleasing group on the outskirts of Greenore. Particularly pleasing is the retention of much original fabric.
