Noted in the OS Name Book as a "...fine, square-built farmhouse with extensive offices and a large farm attached." With much of its original detailing intact, Harelawside promotes interest for its 18th century origins. Rutherfurd's notes a James Murray as farmer here in 1866. That which remains of the original farm steading is set to the NW.
