gate house

while walking, we passed this rather cute wee house surrounded by trees. 




This is the only info I could find on the Gate House in Mountcharles

Not visible in this shot because of foliage, but this house has an extremely steeply pitched roof; rare and perhaps the work of a distinguished architect of Edwardian times; this is a matter for research and a second picture to be taken in winter when a better view exists.

  2. Architects often did something special when designing gatehouses; they were the first thing that visitors saw when they visited the grand mansions so they were made to create a good impression.

    1. I don't know if it is occupied. We didn't see anyone while we were looking around.

  6. Great photos. I love old architecture. (I haven't taken many photos recently due to the winter weather here in the Northeast US. Hopefully I'll have some of my own architecture photos to share on my blog once the weather warms up a little.)
