Also known as No 25 Moorpark. An unusually-detailed farmhouse, particularly notable for its decorative cream brick dressings. Rutherfurd's notes a Mr James Whitlaw as farmer here in 1866. The associated farm buildings are set to the S. Bears some similarity to Nos. 11 & 12 Foulden Holdings and the farmhouse at Foulden Bastle - see separate list entry for the former.
