Statement of Special Interest

The ancillary structure known as the Coachhouse at Marlee Home Farm is an interesting and unusual building. Pre-dating 1808 it has a particularly distinctive steeply pitched pavilion-type roof and the use of a square footprint for a coach house is unusual and it is probable that the building was originally a granary. Its square plan can be identified on an 1808 survey of the 'Mains of Marlie (sic) and North Leys' by George Brown (Plans of Invercauld). This plan shows the square coachhouse building flanked by two narrow rectangular-plan structures with two further ranges forming L-plan offices on the site of the steading. The coach house is also very similar in size and shape to the early 18th century pavilions flanking the south elevation of nearby Marlee House.

The 1859-64 Ordnance Survey map shows the Home Farm as 'Offices', but by 1894 it has become Manor Farm.

The earlier listing noted that the building had a forestair, and housed cart sheds and coach houses below the loft. It is said to have been used by Dunkeld-Braemar coaches, and has been used as a grain store since 1955.

Re-categorised as C(S) from B Group (2006). The listing relates specifically to the group interest of the subject. It applies, as always, to interior as well as exterior, as appropriate to building type.

List description revised 2009.

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The only legal part of the listing is the address/name of site. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing and if a number or name is missing from a listing address it may still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing can also cover structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority advises on the need for listed building consent and they also decide what a listing covers. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
