Early 18th century. 2-storey, symmetrical 3-bay house with single storey wing to E and L-plan range of ancillary buildings adjoining to W. Rendered sandstone rubble. Later raised cills and window surrounds.
S (ENTRANCE) ELEVATION: modern timber sun-porch at ground to centre; widened single window above. Single windows to both floors in remaining bays. Single storey wing recessed to outer right.
INTERIOR: not seen 1999.
2-pane timber sash and case windows. Steeply pitched grey slate roof; prominent skews; coped gablehead stacks.
L-plan range of single storey offices adjoining house to W.
BOUNDARY WALL: high boundary wall adjoining single storey wing to street; lower coped wall to street; high coped wall to S boundary.
The very steep pitch of the roof indicates at least an early 18th century origin, if not earlier. The roof was almost certainly thatched in its original state. The building is first clearly indicated on Knox's map of 1812, and labelled as Liberton Park on the Ordnance Survey map of 1853.
