Description

The Gothic Revival lodge to the J.B. Keane creation of 1840 is now in a somewhat precarious state. It was described in 1994 by Dean as being “secreted behind rampant shrubbery the gabled three bay building constructed in very fine uncoursed squared masonry in which the windows with lancet heads are arranged in pairs…A central ornamental porch to the front door has been taken down. To the steep gables sturdy waved bargeboards…The house is now a ruin, the lodge though occupied, run down”. The final comment no longer holds true as the lodge is now most definitely vacant and in an increasingly poor state of repair. However, it is not beyond rescue and could make an attractive home or holiday accommodation without, as its listing record suggests, “losing its essential architectural qualities”.
