Criteria for Risk
- Suffering from neglect and/or poor maintenance
- Suffering from structural problems
- Abandoned ruin
- Condition of Structure: Ruinous
- Level of Risk: High
The building is a roofless shell. None of the original fabric remains other than the external walls. It is suffering from structural problems that could lead to full or partial collapse, and there is an immediate threat of further deterioration due to vegetation growth.
What remains at Dromdihy is a shell of very solidly built and distinguished two storey, five bay over basement Greek Revival house built for Roger Green Davis in 1833. It has a main block with formal elevation to the south that is detailed with a heavy cornice. The entrance to hall is from a Doric portico on the east side. It is desirable that excessive vegetation be kept under control. The structure is of significant historic importance and requires conservation works to prevent further deterioration.
