Mid 19th century. 2-storey, 3-bay, symmetrical, classical farmhouse. Snecked stone with smooth margins. Advanced flat-roofed, single story porch. Cornice. Single story L-plan steading to rear.
Piended roof. Grey slates. Wallhead stacks.
This 19th century, little externally altered farmhouse and associated steading form a fine group. The farmhouse has retained its symmetrical classical features.
A house at Dinmurchie is identified on some earlier maps, including the 1775 New Map of Ayrshire. Dinmurchie is also documented to be the birthplace of Robert Dalrymple, 1st Viscount Stair, who played a significant part in the development of Scots Law. Viscount Stair was born in 1619, but the current buildings at Dinmurchie seem to date predominantly from the 19th century. It may be that there is an earlier core to the buildings.
