Brief Description

Brisbane House was demolished in the early- to mid-20th century. Brisbane Mains survives. The associated landscape is one of woodland belts and pasture.


The original manor house, known as Kelsoland, was built at some time between the mid-13th century and the end of the 14th. The Kelso family was resident until 1671, when they sold the estate to cousins named Brisbane. The Brisbane family extended the designed landscape, which included a small park and policy planting by the mid-19th century. The house was demolished between 1920 and 1939.
