This fortified house of c1630 overlooking the harbour in Baltimore had stood roofless since the mid 18th century and is now a scheduled ancient monument.

Missing stonework around openings has been built up with layers of stone, clearly distinguishing the new work from the old.  New metal windows inserted within existing openings, retain the appearance of a ruin.  A green oak framed structure has been constructed within the shell, capped with a lead roof which is separated by continuous bands of glazing from the walls below.  The roof walks have been recreated behind a stainless steel balustrade, retaining those sections of the parapet and bartizan which remained.  The only reconstruction has been that of the chimney stacks, necessary to make the fires draw.
