This most desirable property was once the site of “Thornfield House” now demolished. Remaining is the ornate entrance erected c.1840, a protected structure comprising inner and outer piers of channelled ashlar limestone with cast-iron railings and gates between. This is one of the entrances to the lands comprising c. 12.3 hectares (30.4 acres) which are almost all prime quality farm lands laid out in one division. They are bounded on two sides by the N63, on one side by a minor public roadway and on one side by the River Suck. A small portion c. 1.2 hectares (3 acres) along by the river are in the National Heritage Area and Special Protection Area.
A pathway from the ornate entrance leads to the old cobbled courtyard, a ruinous two storey house, imposing old stone outbuildings with bell tower and the magnificent former walled garden.
These historic structures have the potential for restoration and the possibilities are endless.
