Early C19. Of unusual design, said to have been built in the shape of a Turkish
tent, complete with gilt arabic inscriptions to remind the original owner of his
travels in the east. Stuccoed with slate roof. Consisted of centre and 2 wings,
the north eastern one now Scott's Cottage. 2 storeys. Centre has 5 windows with
a large curved centre bay with conical roof. At the south west corner of this
bay is a round, 2 storey turret, shaped like a squat house with the upper storey
almost completely glazed. French casements with Venetian shutters. Single storey
wing to south west. See also Sandhills for possible literary associations.
