Description

Early 20th century. Single storey 3-bay rectangular plan cottage style estate building, located to the S of Glenmuick House walled garden. Tudor half timbering with decorative bracing design to upper wall and rendered infill panels. Striking broad piended roof carried over polygonal verandah with rustic timber columns to E, N and W elevations.

FURTHER DESCRIPTION: N (principal) elevation with doorway to centre flanked by prominent broad canted bay to left. Concrete base course, reed-moulded timber frame with rendered infill panels. Later 20th century (1960 to 1980) brick bases to timber columns.

18 over 2 sash and case timber windows. 6-panel timber door with diagonal bracing panels. Grey slated roof with terracotta decorative ridge tiles and finials. Tooled, squared, coursed and corniced wallhead stack with square clay can.

INTERIOR: admission not obtained at time of survey (2006).

Statement of Interest

This is a good example of an unaltered cottage style estate office, retaining its context, located adjacent to a number of estate cottages and stables to the rear of Glenmuick House (formerly Brackley House). The use of rendered infill panels is unusual. Of particular interest is the rustic timber verandah to 3 elevations.
