  • The Gillstown Granary was built c. 1850. A two storey Granary Building was adjoined by a single storey range of attractive stone built stables, wagon sheds and barn. After a short period the buildings reverted to agricultural use and remained so until purchased by the present owners who were attracted by the very fine stonework.
  • They set about a major restoration and effectively created a house of modern standard within the old buildings. Best quality building materials were used, high levels of insulation and all modern services were installed with excellent standards of workmanship. The buildings were all re-roofed in original slate.
