Mid 19th century, later extension to E. Single-storey, asymmetrical gabled cottage with distinctive octagonal stacks. Roughly coursed whinstone with contrasting light sandstone margins. Raised cills. Some bipartite windows. Arrowslit openings to gables.
Predominantly. 2-over 2-pane windows in timber sash and case. Graded purple slates. Corniced octagonal gable chimney stacks. Raised skews with moulded skew-putts.
This a good example of a well-detailed late 19th century cottage with prominent octagonal cans, situated on the main road at the edge of Monteviot Estate. The dark whinstone and the contrasting sandstone margins add decorative touches to the cottage.
Map evidence suggests that this lodge was the Post Office on the 1st Edition Map of 1863, with the Old Toll house lying slightly to the South. It is named on the 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey Map as Monteviot Cottage and is incorporated into Monteviot Estate.
Monteviot Estate, on the banks of the River Teviot, was developed in the 19th century as the main residential estate of the Marquises of Lothian. The 9th Marquis spent a great deal of his time at Monteviot towards the end of the 19th century and extended the house (see separate listing), and added other structures to the estate.
