Description

Later 19th century. Possibly Sir Samuel Morton Peto (see Notes). Single storey 3-bay picturesque Gothic Gate Lodge with steep pitched gables and overhanging eaves.

Canted bay windows with corniced granite piended roofs to E and W gabled elevations. Monopitched outshot to S (rear) with doorway at W re-entrant angle.

4 and 2-pane sash and case timber windows with pointed arched glazing bars to upper sashes, some fixed pane windows with pointed arched glazing bars. Boarded timber doors. Cast-iron rhones and rhone pipes. Fish scale and diamond pattern roof slates to N facing roof profile. Granite skews to rear outshot. 2 shouldered corniced granite wallhead stacks to rear, some octagonal clay cans.

INTERIOR: simple decorative element retained including 4-panel timber doors, classical timber chimneypiece and decorative plaster cornicework in ground floor reception room, timber staircase with timber hand rail, balusters and newel posts with ball finials.

Statement of Interest

This is a distinctive, good example of a largely unaltered estate Gate Lodge and exhibits a number of decorative design elements. It is located on the main approach to the now demolished House of Glenmuick (1870 to 1947) and may have been designed by the same architect, Sir Samuel Morton Peto.
