View from exterior.
Standing by a walled garden, Harlawhill is a 17th-century L-plan house of two storeys with later modifications. It consists of a long main block and a projecting tower, formerly with an ogee roof
although this was removed in recent years.
The interior has been much altered to connect with later extensions. There is no vaulting.
This was a property of the Hamiltons of Preston, but had passed to the Fowlers, brewers in Prestonpans, by the end of the 18th century.
The house is not occupied and is not in the best condition. At time of writing (2016) it is derelict and boarded-up.
