One of the most unusually-detailed houses fronting Ayton's High Street. Originally associated with the adjacent Colville House - itself built in 1822 for Elezer Colville (see separate list entry). This gabled lodge is said to have been built for Colville's son - Charles D Colville, noted by Rutherfurd as being a Justice of Peace Clerk.
