Additional ancillary structures to rear not included in listing. Site is marked on J Ainslie's Wigton map, 1782 as Lachans, the working Lochans Mill (now demolished) is marked on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map, 1848 as a corn mill. A large grinding stone, presumably from the original corn mill survives in front of the house. The house is a good example of early 19th century rural architecture, which retains its glazing and has an imposing pilastered central doorpiece.
