Incorporated into this ruined C17 house is an earlier tower house, although it's difficult to determine what remains of it. The house is of three storeys with attic rooms in the roof with chimney stacks (with projecting breasts) on the end walls and in the centre. The white patches on the centre stacks are recent lime mortar repairs completed by the present owner with the aid of a cherry picker platform! Calverstown is about 6km southwest of Kilcullen.
