At the centre of the site is Scholarstown House which is a handsome period residence which we note is listed on the register of Protected Structures due to its architectural and historical relevance.

The main entrance to the property is currently located off Scholarstown Road, with a second farmyard entrance located at the Orlagh roundabout.
