Built   in   1730,   by   architect   Richard   Castle   for   Owen Wynne,   this      exquisite,   but   progressively   brutalised   house superbly   located      in   mature   woodland   on   the   banks   of   the Garavoge   River,   is   one      of   County   Sligo's   most   neglected treasures. It   is   a   splendid   and      imposing   example   of   the Palladian-style.      In      spite      of      abject            neglect      and inappropriate   alteration,   it   is   testimony   to   the      quality   of the building that it has survived relatively intact. An      abundance   of   fine   stonework   attests         to   the   high quality      craftsmanship   employed   in   its      construction   and pays   tribute   to      those   whose   vision   was   responsible      for   its conception.     In     addition     to          its     very     high     quality architectural      value   the   house   is   important   both      socially and historically.
