This was built as the manse for the Old Parish Church. It replaced the old manse, Brousterlands (see separate list description), which is now a private dwelling house. Wellbeck House is a very handsome early 19th century villa. It has recently been converted into a residential home for the elderly. The 4 mews cottages and modern flats on the property are also part of the residential complex.
