Residence 'Lutmis'

It was built in the later stages of Highgate Hill’s residental development and presents some unique and ornate Victorian detailing in its architecture. It is one of several late nineteenth and early twentieth century houses on the ridge of Dornoch Terrace that provide evidence of its status as a desirable address at the beginning of the twentieth century.
