house with many unique features and a distinct Gothic flavour. Built
c.1800, with an ingenious plan made up of curved bows. The
windows in the entrance front are pointed; the 1st floor centre
window, and also 2 centre ground floor windows of the bows, being
Venetian windows made Gothic. There is a very large semi-circular
fanlight extending over the door and side lights, with elaborate
glazing believed to be original.
Once the home of the Duke of Wellington, the house
stands on a slight elevation overlooking the River Barrow with views
westwards towards the Killeshin Hills. The setting is delightful
through a tree lined gravelled avenue and mature gardens and grounds
to the front and enclosed high walled garden maintaining privacy to
The mature grounds include many mature specimen
trees and an unusual charming summerhouse originally designed as a
Gazebo over the River.
