4-, 9-, 12-, 16-pane and plate glass glazing patterns in timber sash and case windows. Small grey slates. Coped ashlar stacks, some diamond-aligned, with polygonal cans; plain bargeboarding and overhanging eaves; cast-iron downpipes with decorative rainwater hoppers and fixings.

Later timber-balustered dog-leg staircase and stair window with coloured margins and etched panes. Hall with part-glazed screen door and partly stone flagged. Inner hall (formerly external wall) with decoratively-astragalled window.

ANCILLARY BUILDING: slated, squared and snecked rubble former wash house converted to dwelling with winding timber stair, timber fireplace and 'Lava' china handbasin by Shanks & Co Ltd, Barrhead, Scotland.

Statement of Interest

Thought to have been altered to the design of two brothers who also built nearby Loon Brae. The basement is sited below the earliest part and the lounge (ground SE) bears evidence of an earlier (probably external) wall abutting the fireplace.
