Tower flanking to right, advanced; jetted parapet, irregular fenestration. 2 advanced bays of taller piend-roofed wing to left with windows to each floor.
Various service projections at rear. Interior not seen (1990). Plate glass glazing pattern (ground floor) and 12-pane (1st floor), 8-pane to 2nd floor of tower, in sash and case windows. Coped granite stacks with square cans. Slate roof.
Known as Killiemore on the 1850 OS map, the house changed its name to Kirkchrist House between 1894 and 1907 resuming the name Killiemore in the mid 1970's. The tower is clad in greenery which extends over the centre bays of the house. A water gauge indicating level of water in tank, can be found on rear gable wing.
