Robert C Ferguson, dyer's manager of Muirhall Terrace, applied in 1894 to the Perth Dean of Guild Court to erect a villa in the grounds of Garry Cottage. Unsigned plans from 42 Tay Street, Perth, the office of J & G Young, indicate the probability of John Young as architect. However, John Young died late in 1895, and the practice was continued by his son George Penrose Kennedy Young.
