The present mansion,which dates from 1757, is locally said to occupy the site of an earlier house; portions of two late 17th-century dormer window-pediments are preserved in the garden.

RCAHMS 1979, visited June 1979

Grooves recessed into walls of southeast bedroom on first floor were presumably intended to take battens for panelling; they are however distinguishable from the more recent battens which are spaced differently. Rounded openings were revealed by removal of harling during repairs to W wall of W wing in May 1990; owners stated that original arched openings were revealed in both wings.

Information from Dr J Close-Brooks to RCAHMS, May 1990.
