Country house. 1900 by James Morris of Ayr for Charles Cunninghan Church J.P.
Ironstone ashlar, plain tile roof, stone end and ridge stacks. Double-depth
plan. 2 storeys and attic, 6-window range. Door to right of centre with fine
ornamental hinges and 4-centred arched head in 2-storey porch with Elizabethan
style round arched doorway with small console keyblock, framed by Doric pillars
and arched niches to canted sides. A 4-light chamfered mullion leaded window
above doorway with single light windows to canted sides. Balustraded parapet and
3-light round arched windows to ground floor either side, the arches supported
in the middle by balusters with capitals. To right 4-light chamfered mullion
windows with hood moulds to ground and first floors, a similar 6-light window to
ground floor left, similar 5-light window above. Further to left a pair of
3-storey gabled bay windows with 3 tiers of 4-light mullion windows, either side
of 4-light mullion window with hood mould to ground floor and similar 3-light
window to first floor. Between these windows a stone panel carved with the
Church crest of a demi-greyhound holding a shamrock with motto VIRTUTE below. To
far left a 2-storey canted bay window facing garden to side with one-light
windows and coped parapet. Chamfered plinth, flush quoins, stone eaves, coped
stone gable to right with kneelers and finials, 3 C20 roof dormers, and weather
vane to apex of hipped roof of bay to far left. Leaded-light windows throughout.
Rainwater heads dated 1900. Water-tower to rear left with ground floor partly of
brick, 2 stages and low octagonal top stage with stone coped parapet, partly
crenellated; rest of service wing demolished. Interior has 4-centred arched
stone fireplace to hall, a stone bolection-moulded fireplace to sitting room and
panelled dining room. The design for Hinton House was James Morris' diploma work
for the Royal Scottish Academy. The elevations and plan deposited with the
Academy show a more ambitious design for the left garden side elevation. Other
slight changes made in execution. Hinton House was one of the few buildings
Morris designed in England.
