    About this property

    • Dallars House (previously known as Auchenskeigh) was built in 1775. It is a magnificent Category B listed Georgian mansion built of sandstone with rusticated quoins under a pediment that has urns at the base and apex. It was built as a dower house for William and Agnes Cunningham. In 1995 major renovation work took place at Dallars House with the sensitive division of the property into three separate apartments. The house remains under one title and can easily be converted back into the original mansion with the simple removal of blocked doorways. The renovations in 1995 also included a new roof and in 2012 the ground floor flat was renovated.
