Inglewood House was designed by prominent architectural practice Sydney Mitchell and Wilson, with a fine Jacobean interior and Art Nouveau glasswork. The work of Mitchell and his practice is characterised by the masterful use of late 19th century Freestyle and is responsible for some of the most ecelectic and significant country houses at the turn of the 20th century in Scotland.
