Nisbet House
Nisbet House is a substantial baronial style mansion in Nisbet, Berwickshire, Scotland. It was built in about 1630 by Sir Alexander Nisbet, ancestor of Alexander Nisbet the Herald. Architectural evidence suggests that the building incorporates, at its eastern end, a square pele tower that was the former house. Sir Alexander Nisbet overextended his finances in supporting Charles I in the Civil War, and was forced to sell the property to John Ker in 1652. A square tower in the classical style of William Adam was added to the west end in 1774. The house remained with Ker descendants (latterly in the person of Lord Sinclair) until the 1950s, when the estate were sold to Lord Brocket. After partial modernisation, the house was sold again in the mid-1960s to a local farmer, and remained unoccupied until its recent and comprehensive restoration as a private residence.
