Description

Later 19th century (probably 1877). Single storey and attic, 3-bay lodge house with oversized decoratively bargeboarded jerkinheaded porch. Squared and snecked rubble with ashlar quoins.

N (ENTRANCE) ELEVATION: centre bay with finialled slated porch on square-section timber piers with cross-braced returns, part-glazed timber door, window in canted bay to right and steeply-pitched dormerheaded window with decorative timberwork to pediment breaking eaves to left.

S (RAILWAY) ELEVATION: 2 windows to ground and dormerheaded window to right.

E ELEVATION: window to right of centre at ground with shouldered

wallhead stack to piended centre roof section above.

W ELEVATION: single bay, piend-roofed elevation with flat-roofed lean-to structure at ground and shouldered wallhead stack.

Plate glass glazing in timber sash and case windows. Grey slates. Coped ashlar stacks with full complement of polygonal cans. Deeply overhanging eaves with moulded pendant finials to N.

ANCILLARY STRUCTURE: long single storey, rectangular-plan, single span greenhouse on brick base with 8 small segmental-headed openings close to ground at left (see Notes), and windows now largely blocked with vertical timber bands.

Statement of Interest

Originally the gardener's cottage for nearby Knockfarrie House (listed separately) giving additional interest for its group value. The unusual ground-height segmental-headed openings of the ancillary building are thought to have permitted expansion of roots of small greenhouse-grown fruit trees, probably apricots.
