The partner pavilion , Penkaet House, is listed separately; the different names for the residence serve only to differentiate; they were both designed by James Hamilton and at the same time. The House itself was also by Hamilton, possibly incorporating earlier fabric.The simple form of the gates and earlier, weathered state of the gatepiers, suggest that they are not those from Bloxholm Castle mentioned in the inventory and by Whitehead. It is probable that they were brought from somewhere else again, while those from Bloxholm were moved to the South Lodge of Winton House, close by to the E, where later piers were erected to support them, probably earlier in the 20th century. See separate listing.
