Built 1811 around the fabric of an earlier house. The house is designed part in Romantic Castle style and part in Abbey style. Described by Mark Bench-Jones as “a romantic early 19th century castle rising from a wooded hilltop above the Meeting of the Waters”. The castle section is articulated with three-stage towers and battlemented parapets while the abbey section is two storey with gothic tracery windows and a battlemented parapet.
