Details House dating from 1666, restored in the 19th century. On the 1st edition the house is on an L-plan, but had been extended to the north and south by the time of the 2nd edition map. The house was originally rectangular, 2-storey with a 3-window centre flanked by narrow wings with shaped jerkin head gables. The central door was framed in Ionic pilasters with an elliptical window above, and another at first floor level. There is a semi-circular porch corbelled to square at attic level, a corner turret and a central rear addition. The interior was completely recast in 1855 (the details suggesting that this was possibly by James Matthews). A date stone bears three dates: 1666, 1713 and 1855. Within the garden is a 1688 stone (from the Inverurie area). A sundial of 17th century obelisk type was removed. See NJ80NE0032 for garden/grounds.
