Notes NOTES: The house, built for James Johnston, was designed by John James and built in the first half of the 18th century. Later James Gibbs added the Octagonal Room - the only part of the house which remains today. Alexander Murray bought the property in 1827 and after he died it was purchased in 1846 by Lord Kilmorey. See RIBA84145 for a print showing proposed alterations to the house for Kilmorey.
