Statement of Interest

Cally House does not appear on Stobie's maps of 1783 and 1805. By the time of the 1862 OS map, the house was largely constructed to its current plan form. It seems likely that the 3-bay southern range is the earliest part of the building, followed by the west wing to the rear. The remaining wings appear to be part of a radical mid 19th century remodelling, which probably included relocation of the chimneys and the addition of crowsteps
