Statement of Interest

Dating probably from the early ' mid 18th century, Rineton is little-altered, although it is likely that the fenestration to the ground floor has been altered and would originally have been symmetrical. The ancillary structure is highly unusual with its timber, steeply sloping gables. It was built for the Macdonalds of Rineton.
