Description:

Built in the in 1990s, the exterior of the House for an Art Lover has been realised, in materials, craftsmanship and dimensions, as closely as possible to the Mackintosh designs of 1901.  Take a stroll around the House and into the nearby walled garden.  You will see that the House sits comfortably in its parkland surroundings, almost as if Mackintosh himself had selected the setting.

Inside the House, Mackintosh designed the entire layout of rooms but he and his wife provided detailed interior designs for only the double height Entrance Hall, the Dining Room, Oval Room and Music Room*.  This group of rooms have been realised in breathtaking detail together with the Main Staircase and Gallery and is referred to as 'The Mackintosh Suite', to which visitors are welcome at most times.
