DESCRIPTION

The original part of the house dates from 1810 and is constructed of sandstone under a series of pitched slate roofs with a lovely south facing façade and lovely aspect out over the gardens towards the Hill of Tarvit in the distance. More recent pavilions have been added either side of the original part of the house to provide a lovely sun lounge to the west and the kitchen with associated accommodation to the east. The house is approached from the parking area to the north by an impressive porch with Roman Doric columns either side.
