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.

Williamstown is a three storey over basement, nine bay house in a parkland setting. It was originally a five bay house but the central portion was extended by two bays to each side circa 1830 with ashlars limestone, brilliantly cut to match the original. The structure is of significant historic importance and requires conservation works to prevent further deterioration.
