Statement of Interest

Lathallan House, formerly known as Laurence (or Lawrence) Park, was built in 1826 and designed by Thomas Hamilton. Ivy Cottage, sited to the SE of the house, was seriously damaged by vandalism and fire in the late 20th century: it is listed for its group value. The Walled Garden and Power House are also listed separately and part of the B Group with the house.
