Thursday Doors – Glenmona Lodge, Antrim

This week’s Thursday Doors features Glenmona Lodge, one of the old estate houses in Cushendun, County Antrim. They must have really liked arches to have five of them on the main entrance.

I love the dark grey framing the windows and how there are even more arches on the side entrance. It would have been so nice to see the inside of this big old house.

There’s a polytunnel in the distance so I think the garden is still in use.

I would love french doors to my own garden but I need lots of light coming into the house so patio doors it will have to be.

Thanks for joining me this week, Dan has lots of interesting places to visit from all over the world on his blog. Next week my Thursday Doors will feature more photographs and a bit of history from the County Antrim estate, Glenmona Lodge.

    I’m beginning to think that you can have too many arches. I never thought I’d say that, but the second house, with two arches is much more attractive to me. I think the first once should have stopped at three arches. That said, they are both magnificent buildings. It was sad to read about the church.

  4. Lovely house. Perhaps you’ll be able to see the inside one day. When I was reading about the church, I started thinking how close the words “deconsecrated” and “desecrated” are, as are friend and fiend, persecuted and prosecuted, and so on. Just how my mind works sometimes. šŸ™‚

    I was watching a home improvement show this weekend while under the weather and apparently wide ‘European’ arches are becoming quite popular. There’s still hope for that estate šŸ™‚
