House with outbuildings and

Stable court. Probably 1731 by Roger Morris for Duke of Argyll, and c.1770,
possibly by sir William Chambers for Duke of Buccleuch. Ironstone ashlar;
Stonesfieid-slate roofs with ashlar stacks. Single range, extended by 2 wings
and enclosed by a wall and gates. 2 storeys. 3 central bays of main range are
rusticated and break forward between projecting quoin strips and below a shallow
pedimental gable containing clock within an oculus; ground floor has 3 round
arches containing coach-house doors, above which are small plain-architraved
windows, the middle window with a lowered sill. Plain ashlar flanking sections
terminating at projecting rusticated quoin strips each retain 3 similar
architraved windows at first floor, and the left range also has 3 architraved
openings at ground floor; ground floor to right is mostly C20 garage doors.
Hipped roof rises behind a solid parapet with a moulded coping. Later wings,
each a house, form 3-window pavilions linked to main range by lower sections,
and each has a symmetrical front with a central door between 12-pane sashes, and
has 6 pane sashes at first floor; parapets have moulded cornices continued round
all sides, and end and rear walls have similar windows. Outer face of left
linking section has a blind arch containing a smaller doorway. Pavilions and
linking sections are probably c.1770. Enclosing wall, approximately 2 metres
high, projects forward from the wings and returns to central rusticated
gatepiers capped by moulded entablatures and rusticated ball finials, which may
be part of the earlier work.
