Brief description of site
Muirfield Gate is a two acre Arts and Crafts-style villa and garden created by architect Sydney Mitchell at the turn of the century as his own home. Recent restoration works to both house and garden have included the reinstatement of Mitchell's 'flower corridor', a structure unique in Scotland. Some additional housing has been inserted into the landscape in the mid-20th century.
Brief history of site
The site was designed by architect Sydney Mitchell in the late-19th and early-20th centuries as his own house and garden. Alterations were undertaken to both house and garden in the mid-20th century, including the construction of additional houses in the landscape. Some of the amendments were the work of garden designer Kate Hawkins. Part of the original design has since been restored including the reinstatement of Mitchell's flower corridor which is thought to be unique.
