Jordanstone House is an important Scottish Mansion, the original part of which dates from the late 18th century. It was extended circa 1890 when John Murray Robertson designed a pedimented wing with tripartite windows. A corresponding wing was added by Lorimer & Matthew in 1929 to give the property a symmetrical southern façade.
It is understood that the Georgian house at the core of Jordanstone was built for Admiral Sir John Knight. Knight is perhaps best known as the Sea Captain sent out to bring Caroline of Bruntswood to Britain for her ill-fated marriage to King George IV.
The current owners acquired Jordanstone in 2004 and have renovated the property to create the stunning country house and gardens that can be seen today.
Jordanstone House has been upgraded but retains its period character. The house is built of stone and partially rendered under a predominantly slate roof. Internally period features include ornate marble and carved stone fireplaces, elaborate plaster work relief ceilings, circular windows and a south facing loggia.
The house is approached though an impressive gateway with a tarmac drive leading past the West Lodge to the sweep at the side of the house.
