Appraisal

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.

Eyrecourt is a significant deteriorating ruin of the mid 17th century. The house was dismantled in the early 20th century when the spectacular staircase was exported to the USA. The structure is of significant historic importance and requires conservation works to prevent further deterioration.
