Brownlow House is Lurgan's grandest secular building, erected by Charles Brownlow, it had been called Lurgan House until Mr. Brownlow was raised to the peerage. It is constructed in the Elizabethan style using freestone imported from Scotland. The 'modern' house was designed by the celebrated Scottish architect William Playfair. Playfair was more at home with the classical style - his many fine Greek Revival buildings, including the National Gallery of Scotland, and the Royal Scottish Institution Buildings, helped give Edinburgh the title 'Athens of the North'.
Admission charge: fee charged for tours. Of particular note at Brownlow House are the tall spiralled chimney pots, the delightful lanterned tower with lantern and dome, and the decorative carriage gates at the entrance. LurganPark and the golf course behind were formally the Demesne of Lurgan House. Though greatly altered for recreational purposes they still form one of the finest town parks in Ulster.
