Rivaldsgreen, c.1840

Vaguely Elizabethan in the early manner of William Burn - skyline of octagonal chimneystacks, a cross finial to the gable, and tall dormer window-heads - large, L-plan, stone villa set at the end of a long drive, pleasantly scaled courtyard to the east. A two-storey hipped bay faces north over the gardens, as does the handsome entrance porch in the angle. First-floor windows are pedimented, and the lofty chimneystacks are angled and grouped. Extensive alterations and extensions in 1853 and 1862, principally by Peddie and Kinnear.
