Description

Grade II. Circa 1860 and said to have been built as a hunting lodge for the 2nd Earl of Portrench and, indeed, with a stag in artificial stone over the porch. Stock brick; stone dressings; slate roof. As asymmetrical in composition as it is idiosyncratic in style. Much use of dogtooth ornament and lozenge patterning in raised brickwork. Mostly of 2 storeys but with a 3-storeyed central tower porch. All windows of ause de panier arch type except those of the 5 left hand bays and those of the third storey of the tower which are round arched but have Early English type foliage in the capitals. Attached to the house on the left, the stable block in similarly idiosyncratic style and a date 1866 (B1).
