(Formerly listed as Adderbury
House with outbuildings and

Stable court. Probably 1731 by Roger Morris for Duke of Argyll, and c.1770,
possibly by sir William Chambers for Duke of Buccleuch. Ironstone ashlar;
Stonesfieid-slate roofs with ashlar stacks. Single range, extended by 2 wings
and enclosed by a wall and gates. 2 storeys. 3 central bays of main range are
rusticated and break forward between projecting quoin strips and below a shallow
pedimental gable containing clock within an oculus; ground floor has 3 round
arches containing coach-house doors, above which are small plain-architraved
windows, the middle window with a lowered sill. Plain ashlar flanking sections
terminating at projecting rusticated quoin strips each retain 3 similar
architraved windows at first floor, and the left range also has 3 architraved
openings at ground floor; ground floor to right is mostly C20 garage doors.
Hipped roof rises behind a solid parapet with a moulded coping. Later wings,
each a house, form 3-window pavilions linked to main range by lower sections,
and each has a symmetrical front with a central door between 12-pane sashes, and
has 6 pane sashes at first floor; parapets have moulded cornices continued round
all sides, and end and rear walls have similar windows. Outer face of left
linking section has a blind arch containing a smaller doorway. Pavilions and
linking sections are probably c.1770. Enclosing wall, approximately 2 metres
high, projects forward from the wings and returns to central rusticated
gatepiers capped by moulded entablatures and rusticated ball finials, which may
be part of the earlier work.
