Sandford Country House Hotel was designed in the arts & crafts style by architect MH Baillie Scott in 1902.

Sandford Cottage was built for the Valentine family of Dundee.

Another interesting house by an English architect of the same period:
Edwin Lutyens’ Grey Walls Hotel, a sumptous country house and gardens located in the lovely seaside town of Gullane, in East Lothian, near Edinburgh.

This British architect lived from 1865 to 1945.

He was born – and died – in Kent, south east England, UK. However, he set up his architecture practice on the Isle of Man in 1892.

An important new building close to this MH Baillie Scott house: Maggie’s Centre Kirkcaldy, the first permanent building by Zaha Hadid architect in the UK.

At the beginning of his career, he worked with Fred Saunders, with whom he had studied at the Isle of Man School of Art, which is also in Douglas. In May 1891, he was an art teacher. It was at the school of art that Scott and Archibald Knox became friends.

He then left Saunders and set up his own business in Douglas. In 1894, in an article in The Studio, he proposed a design having a high central hall with a galleried inglenook between the drawing and dining rooms and separated from them by folding screens. This hypothetical ‘ideal house’ brought in many commissions.

MH Baillie Scott developed his own Arts and Crafts style however, which progressed towards a simple form of architecture, relying on truth to material and function, and on precise craftsmanship.

MH Baillie Scott was known for the work he put into both the exterior and the interior, and its decoration. He produced nearly 300 buildings over the course of his career.
