'Glorious' Isle of Man Baillie Scott house faces demolition

  • Comment

A turn-of-the-century home by Arts and Crafts architect Baillie Scott is set to be bulldozed after the Isle of Man council removed a protection order.

MacAndrew House, one of 15 Baillie Scott houses on the island, was de- registered after the new owners claimed it was too damaged to repair. Its red brick and sandstone facade, three Dutch gables and window mullions have been plastered over and painted. No plans have been submitted for the building, but the owner is known to want to demolish it. But architect Gregory Slater, who has published work on Baillie Scott, called it glorious. 'It would be terrible to highlight the island in such a destructive light,' he said.
