This small mansion was built about 1810 by an architect called Lugar, a contemporary
of John Nash, and is very similar in design to a number of houses built by Nash
such as Cronkhill near Shrewsbury or Sandridge in Devon. Dunstall Priory is
typical of the Rural Palladian style combining the simplest classical shape
with varied planning and picturesque silhouette. The chief feature of the house
is a round tower with conical slate roof and irregular-shaped 2-storey main
structure adjacent. Elevations of stucco with incised lines in imitation of
stone courses, projecting eaves with plastered soffit and Welsh slate roof.
Round-headed sash windows and French casements on ground floor with canopied
verandah. The interior plan is interesting with Regency bowed room formed in
the base of the tower. Dunstall Priory was the house of the late Lord Dunsany.
