BARONSTON HOUSE, Ballinacargy, County Westmeath, was a late 18th century house consisting of a three-storey centre block joined to two-storey wings by curved sweeps.

The centre block had a seven-bay front with a pedimented breakfront; a three-bay projecting porch; wings of five bays.

Having suffered a series of fires, the centre block was replaced, in 1903, by a large, gabled, Edwardian villa, with the sweeps and wings remaining on either side.

Baronston was sold in 1929 and demolished thereafter.
