A charming Tudor Gothic style gate lodge built c. 1837 located along the N54 Cavan / Monaghan Road. Once forming part of the Cloverhill Demesne owned by the Saunderson family this decorative gate lodge exemplifies skilful architectural detail evident in the original features throughout the property including a blank shield surmounted by a spur crest of the Saunderson family located over the crenellated bay window. The property requires restoration and modernising; however, it has retained most of its charming characteristic detailing; carved sandstone Tudor hoods, limestone quoins, metal lattice windows with sandstone surrounds and mullions, cast-iron rainwater pipes and decorative cast-iron gates. This modest gate lodge occupies an overall site area of 0.67 hectares approx. extending from the N54 onto Corrarod Lough. Rarely does an opportunity present to acquire a piece of history that once formed part of the Saunderson Demesne.
