Now a listed building the construction of Troy Hall was completed in 1897 and the design has many features associated with late Victorian architecture including bay windows, balconies , gable details, sliding sash windows, decorative chimneys and a turret. The sliding sash windows are slightly unusual as the top sash has small panes of glass while the lower sash is one pane.
As is typical of the era the ceilings are high and the room sizes generous, each ceiling has a cornice detail reflecting the importance of the room, for example the guests sitting /dining room, originally the main reception room, has a beautiful ordinate deep cornice of many different facets and carefully detailed timber panelling reflecting, and adding too the grandeur of the room. The bedrooms, on the other hand, have attractive but plain cornices and the original servants quarters has no ornate detail of any kind. The internal five panelled raised and feathered doors are original and are a feature of the main house whereas the servantís annex has plain panel doors.
In the 1970ís Troy Hall was converted to a dwelling house and apartments and subsequently to two dwelling houses. The west wing is now the Troy Hall guest house and the east a private dwelling. The whole of Troy Park comprised the grand grounds for the hall and required a team of gardeners for its upkeep. The gate house and the red brick pier, at one time supporting ornate gates, at the entrance to what was Troy Estate can still be seen when entering the Park from the Culmore road.
Over the decades the estate has been developed, mostly by individuals buying a site and constructing their own homes and this accounts for the many different house styles evident in the park today. However Troy Hall still nestles in substantial mature private grounds a part of which is dedicated to guest use.
When entering Troy Hall B&B grounds keep to the left, around the oval shaped lawn as access to the guest house is on the left (west) wing of the building
