margins, centre part single-storey and attic with 4-column
wooden portico; R-doric of unusual type, lower 2/3rd with 2
bands of reeding upper 1/3rd plain; ashlar granite gable
rises pedimentally behind, 1 window with 1 canted dormer
above either side. End blocks 2-storey, 1-window to front, 2

Statement of Interest

Probably built by James Shirras of Old Deer who bought it

from Alex How in 1825 or by Crawford Noble to whom he gave

the property in 1833. Ellismill House nearby, now gutted by

fire, seem to be by the same hand but of rather earlier date

(1805). Centre 2-storey without portico and 3-window bow on

E. front, details otherwise very similar. The old barn (1st

provisions list item) is extant but very dilapidated.

Hayfield, N.N.E. of Berryhill has been 2-storey 3-window

Georgian with single storey bow fronted wings but has been

Victorianised
