- Condition of Structure: Poor
- Level of Risk: High
This building has been vacant for a number of years and does not appear to be maintained. Most of the external fabric remains, but there are obvious signs of deterioration, particularly water penetration, slipped slates and vegetation growth. There is no immediate danger of collapse but the condition is such that unless urgent remedial works are carried out the building will sharply deteriorate.
This highly decorated vacant gate lodge sits in a prominent location at the entrance to the Lough Rynn Estate, it is built principally from red brick with timber and terracotta slate features. Its features are deteriorating steadily. A new owner should be sought and a new use identified to prevent further deterioration of its character.
