Description

Built circa 1806 as a country house for John More, cashier in the Royal Bank in Glasgow. Design is very "Adamitic", reminiscent of work by David Hamilton. Now incorporated within expanded city boundary. 2 storeys (sunk basement at rear), symmetrical 5-bay front with advanced/recessed wall-planes. Pedimented advanced centre bay, curved at ground (circular vestibule within) and altered (it was gothick - windowed and pinnacled originally) doorcase reconstructed from fragments, engaged columns with banded rustication like that of the base course; iron-railed balcony above and 1st floor tripartite; end window bays on main front also shallow-advanced. All now inappropriately thick-harled, only lights of curved entrance bay have margins, and these are rendered. Eaves/lintel band and main cornice, balustrade partly dismantled at left; rebuilt end stacks. Cast-iron 1st floor window balconies on west gable; to left (ie east) recessed full-height bay, low bay beyond with curved front (there were formerly a pair). Low-pitch roof with modern tiles; unusual stone centre apex feacture of unknown purpose.
