The property has not been in use for a number of year and having fallen into disrepair, now requires complete refurbishment throughout.

Vacated, 1874. Resold, 1876. Adapted to alternative use, 1877. Occupied, 1901; 1911. Reroofed, 1941-3, to accommodate alternative use. Refenestrated, Vacated, 2000. The National Inventory of Architectural Heritage describes the property as, A country house erected for Colonel Dominick Browne (Bence-Jones 1988, 84) representing an important component of the mid eighteenth-century domestic built heritage of the outskirts of Claremorris with the architectural value of the composition, 'a commodious building.suitable as the residence of an independent person' (Encumbered Estates 1854; Lyons 1993, 123), confirmed by such attributes as the deliberate alignment maximising on panoramic vistas overlooking gently rolling grounds; the symmetrical footprint centred on a Classically-detailed doorcase; the definition of the principal floor as a slightly elevated "piano nobile"; the construction in a "sparrow pecked" rough cut limestone offset by sheer dressings demonstrating good quality workmanship; the diminishing in scale of the openings on each floor producing a graduated visual impression; and the parapeted roof restructured to designs signed (1941-3) by Thomas Joseph Cullen (1879-1947) of Suffolk Street, Dublin (DIA). Having been reasonably well maintained, the elementary form and massing survive intact together with quantities of the original fabric, both to the exterior and to the interior where contemporary joinery; Classical-style chimneypieces; and sleek plasterwork enrichments, all highlight the artistic potential of the composition: however, the introduction of replacement fittings to most of the openings has not had a beneficial impact on the character or integrity of the country house. Furthermore, a bunker-like domed icehouse [SMR MA101-017003-]; and a walled garden (----), all continue to contribute positively to the group and setting values of a much diminished estate having historic connections with the Browne family including the Honourable George Browne MP (c.1735-82); the Right Honourable Denis "The Rope" Browne MP (1763-1828); and James Browne MP (1793-1854); and the Blacker family including Murray McGregor Blacker JP DL (1824-1913) of Goldingham Hall, Suffolk.
