Possibly John Tait, circa 1837. Single storey t-plan gabled lodge. Stugged grey ashlar with base course, hoodmoulds and chamfered reveals. Doorway to later flat-roofed stone porch set in re-entrant angle, panelled door. Window to right, advanced bay to left with canted window and slit opening in gablehead above. Harled modern addition to rear. Horizontally sliding sash and case windows with 8-pane glazing pattern, modern glazing at rear. Grey slates, timber bracketed eaves, rendered and lined, paired diamond stacks.
GATEPIERS AND QUADRANT WALL: low, coped ashlar quadrant wall and panelled ashlar, corniced gatepiers to main road.
Elvingston South Lodge is a good example of a 19th century purpose-built gate lodge prominently sited on a major roadway which, along with the associated gatepiers and quadrant walls, makes a significant contribution to the street and landscape. Despite it no longer being on a direct access route to Elvingston House, the lodge maintains its functional and historic association to the mansion.
Elvingston House, Dovecot and Stables, to the N, and East Lodge are listed separately.
Information supplied by the current owner suggests that sections of what may have been a third gate pillar lies half buried on the property, (2011).
