Details Former coach house, now in residential use, built in 1855 within the Ury House designed landscape (NO88NE0104), probably by John Baird of Glasgow, and converted to a dwelling in circa 1980. It is a single and two-storey, five-bay, rectangular-plan, Tudor-detailed former coach house with a shaped centre gable, polygonal ogee-roofed turreted buttresses, pedimented stone dormerheads and a centre courtyard. The buildings are of squared and coursed pink granite with contrasting stugged grey ashlar dressings, a moulded eaves course, hoodmoulded pointed-arch, segmental-arch openings, stugged voussoirs, concave-moulded arrises and raked cills. The principal south symmetrical elevation is a two-storey range with substantial three-stage, ogee-roofed and finialled buttresses flanking a slightly advanced centre bay with broad hoodmoulded cart arch. The cart arch has been infilled with a part-glazed timber door and single hoodmoulded window in a stone-finialled gablehead above with kneelers. The flanking bays are regularly fenestrated with glazed arrowslits flanking the centre at the ground and first-floor windows breaking the eaves into dormerheads. This south elevation faces the main entrance of Ury House, and reflects the ogee-roofed polygonal columns at its porte cochere, as well as its pedimented gables heads (NO88NE0050). Plate glass glazing is used in replacement timber sash and case windows. The roof has large grey slates, ashlar stacks with cans, some polygonal, ashlar-coped skews with moulded skewputts and cast-iron downpipes with decorative rainwater hoppers. There is a low flat-coped terrace wall and semicircular-coped coursed rubble boundary wall, both to the west.
