Stephenstown House, built by the Fortescue family around 1790, is now a ruin and can be seen from a distance as it stands at the highest point in the locality. The single storey part would most likely have been a later addition providing further accommodation.

It is always hard to tell how long ago a derelict house was abandoned but in this case there are still some signs of life suggesting that relatively speaking it is not that long ago. The range is still in place in the kitchen and there are still the remains of some decorative plasterwork and columns. Even parts of the roof remain but one by one the trusses are coming crashing down. Extensive farm buildings in fair condition can be found a short distance from the house.
