Statement of Interest

Set to the NW of Lintlaw Farm. This symmetrical range retains architectural interest - the vertical-pane glazing and the gabled, sandstone dormers, unusually at wallhead, being particularly notable. See separate list entry for the nearby No. 10 Lintlaw Farm Cottage - originally 2 properties, built to the same design as Nos. 5 & 6.
