Statement of Interest

Formerly listed as 'Offices North of House'. Group with Inverernan House, Dovecot Cottage, Ice House, Gates and Walled Garden. During renovation work in the 1980s, part of the stable block was converted for business use. The well-designed stable and coach house range would have been part of the general improvements carried out in the 1830s when Inverernan House was remodelled to include a classical faƧade, and a court of offices and icehouse were added to the NW. The walled garden sited to the SW probably also dates from this period.
