Like many other vernacular houses scattered across the Ulster countryside this Co Antrim building was unlisted despite dating back in part to the early 18th century.
It had seen additions and accumulations over the years, and the main house had been ‘riz up’ about 1900 and then further altered. Nevertheless enough remained to attract new owners keen to revoke a demolition order hanging over it, retain the features that remained and restore what was missing. Hearth acted as architects for the work in 2000. The house now contains two artists’ studios as well as a charming traditional kitchen.
