The house occupies a prominent position in the village of Gateside and is one of only a few remaining unaltered buildings of some age in the village. Gateside was mainly composed of small vernacular cottages in the 18th and early 19th centuries but many of these were cleared away to make way for 2-storey tenements and houses such as this. In turn, many of these have been altered or demolished in the 20th century making this example now a relative rarity.
