Statement of Interest

B group comprises the Garden Pavilion and former Billiards House at Bella Vista, a house built in 1801, but much enlarged in 1875 and further altered at later dates. The form of the garden pavilion reflects that of the Watch Tower at Duddingston Parish Church (separately listed).
