The grade shall be upgraded to Grade II* (star) and the description shall be amended to read:

Pavilion, now house. Circa 1770-80, possibly by Sir William Chambers, for the 3rd Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch; extended and altered in 1820s and 1850s. Flemish bond red brick; gabled Chinese-style slate roof with lead flashings and gable ends with dramatic upturned corners; brick lateral stacks. Square plan. Chinoiserie style. 3 storeys; each side of one bay. East front has segmental- arched 2-light ground floor window, late C19 four-light first-floor window with glazing bars and large circular window with glazing bars to second floor; leaded gable end has thistle emblem (Henry Scott (3rd Duke) was a Knight of the Thistle). South front has late C19 conservatory added to ground floor, segmental-arched late C19 four-light first-floor window with glazing bars and large elliptical second-floor window with glazing bars. Mid C19 two-storey extensions of brick and slate to north and west, that to west of 2-window range with tripartite sashes above large bow window and that to north of 9 window range with semi-circular arched door and ground-floor sashes set beneath corona- moulded cornice and hipped roof with swept flashings to match pavilion; early C20 extension built across west end of C19 extensions. Interior: mid C19 fire- places and cornices. History: exceptionally rare example of the Chinoiserie style. The distinctive roof slope and the circular and elliptical first-floor windows are particularly characteristic of Chamber's designs, and it is known that Chambers worked on other houses for the Duke and Duchess after their marriage in 1767. Caroline of Brunswick lived here after her separation from the Prince Regent in 1799. Montagu House, to which the west side of the pavi- lion was attached, was demolished in 1815; extended 1820s for Legge family and 1850s for Lewis Glenton.
