A fine house set within its own well-kept grounds, which is an interesting addition to the architectural diversity of Sunday's Well. The full-height canted three-bays, picturesque pointed, round- and ogee-headed window openings with red brick dressings, and simple render pilasters add to its distinctive character. It is orientated away from the streetscape to face south over the River Lee, to maximise light and views.
