Statement of Interest

Almost certainly by same architect as similarly detailed Slateford Farmhouse. Adjacent Myreside Steading is not included in the listing but is of some interest. Dated 1818, the cartshed has been converted to a dwelling in a manner more skilful and aesthetically pleasing than normal, notably in the treatment of the "ports" or arch spaces. The rest is being converted and extended to manufacturing and accommodation use in an unusual and idiosyncratic fashion, in a variety of styles mostly traditional and in a mixture of natural, recycled and synthetic materials.
