Replaced an earlier 'Littledean' to the NE - shown on the 1860 OS map and no longer in place. This later house is virtually identical to the design of Bunkle Manse, as shown in William J Gray's TREATISE - see separate list entry for 'Kirkside House, Bunkle & Preston Parish, Berwickshire'. Although not apparent in his list of works and thereby, not obviously by Gray himself, it is possible that the architect here used Gray's TREATISE (published in 1852) as a pattern book. The nearby Ayton Mains Farmhouse also bears strong similarity - see separate list entry, Ayton Parish.
