EDEN VILLA - Bachelors Walk
It was a two-story farmhouse, with a range of out-building''s, surrounding two courts, also walled garden, with quite large areas of landscaped planting.

Construction was probably field-stone in mud and lime mortar, with brick reinforcements, at the corners,openings and chimneys, all being harled and limed washed.

Apparently of 18th century origin. The building was added to and altered in the first half of the 19th century.

The central hallway contained an attractive transverse staircase. Unfortunately the property fell into disrepair and was demolished.
It has been turned into a beautiful Park & is maintained by the local council.

ECHS do a lot for the community that you dont hear about. The chairman was recently asked to talk about the influence of Sam McGredy and his production of roses.
Sam was a world wide expert on the production of roses who came from Portadown. He recently passed away in New Zealand . The talk was done in the millennium centre in Portadown and was well received by all who attended it.
Sam employed a lot of people from Portadown especially during the summer holidays. Information can be found on YouTube and the internet.
