Possibly by William Burn and David Bryce, and built by 1857
(on 1st ed OS map). Asymmetrical 2-storey villa-type house
with simple "Jacobean" detailing, moulded skews run
horizontally over angles, openings with margins and splayed
ingoes; bays gabled or with gabled 1st floor dormer heads;
single and mullioned windows. Snecked ashlar, polished
dressings, prominent string course between floors, sash
windows, stacks inset over bases, slate roofs. 3-bay main
front with advanced centre entrance bay. Basically L-plan,
detailing continued on flanks, rendered rear walls,
including square (?staircase) bay in re-entrant angle (like
a Scots 17th century house) with a bell-cast roof integrated
with main roof; also long and low service range.

Statement of Interest

Seemingly built in conjunction with the nearby iron Works

which began operations in 1846 as the "Berbeth" works, later

the Dalmellington Iron Company.
