Corravahan House is a substantial early nineteenth-century classical house, built in the Georgian style c 1840 by Rev. Marcus Gervais Beresford. It replaced the eighteenth-century parsonage at Drung and was used as a rectory until 1870, by which time it had been sold to the Reverend (later Bishop) Charles Leslie, a cousin of the Leslies of Glaslough. The Leslies lived at Corravahan until 1972. After their departure the house was only occupied occasionally, until purchased by the Elliott family in 2003. The Elliotts have carried out a sympathetic programme of repair and conservation which is now nearing completion, while the restoration of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century gardens is continuing.
An architectural description may be found on the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage website (see http://www.buildingsofireland.ie/niah/search.jsp?type=record&county=CV®no=40402103 )
