John Honeyman & Keppie added a tower-like four-storey, yellow sandstone building to an 1860s Italian Renaissance-style villa. The addition contained family accommodation, services and a billiard room.

Authorship: The untraced masters of the copy drawings submitted to Glasgow Dean of Guild Court were probably by Mackintosh, while the Dean of Guild copies are annotated by him. The massing of the addition, references to traditional Scottish architecture, and disposition of windows, point to Mackintosh as the designer.
