Mains of Pittendreich

John Manning Chartered Architect

A substantial pink limestone farmhouse which was cold and inconvenient to live in, and the farm office inadequate. The stonework was in a bad condition. To form the bedrooms new windows were formed in the East elevation and the concrete lintel over the kitchen window replaced with a stone lintel. The staircase to the servantÕs bedrooms was removed and the landing enlarged to serve all the bedrooms and the decorative cast iron balustrade reproduced to match. A new stained glass window was designed. The office building is clad in Douglas fir boarding above a battered stone plinth with slate capping; also the roof is slate to match the rest of the house.
