Dundarave, which was built to replace Bushmills House, was designed by the eminent architect Sir Charles Lanyon was built in 1846, a contemporary of Castle Leslie. It occupies high ground over the village of Bushmills and the coastline of North Antim, near the port of Portballintrae. The estate is made up of extensive woods, part of which allegedly were planted following World War I to recreate the wooded area near the Somme, these amount to approximately 100 acres (40 ha). The estate is designated within planning laws under Historic Parks, Gardens and Demesnes.

Dundarave has four gate lodges, two of which date to Bushmills House (c. 1837), the latter two were also designed by Lanyon and are grander in design and proportion.

It is reputedly the largest house in Northern Ireland still to be in private occupation.

In 2014, Dundarave (Bushmills) and its 549.7 acres (222.46 ha.) was listed for sale with Savills U.K. at the guide price of £5,000,000.
