Description

Possibly John Paterson, circa 1800. 2-storey with attic and basement, 5-bay classical house with blind Doric portico, piend and platform roof with circular cupola. Snecked squared rubble with droved ashlar margins. Moulded cill course, band courses and eaves cornice with small blocking course. Segmental headed doorpiece with paired flanking columns and corniced balustrade. Voussoirs and stone mullions.

NW (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: centre bay with stair and iron railings leading to broad panelled timber door with flanking lights and sunburst-astragalled fanlight, balustrade above giving way to wide centre tripartite (outer lights blinded); regular fenestration to slightly set back outer bays at each floor (including basement).

SE (RIVER) ELEVATION: conical-roofed bowed centre bay with 3 windows to each floor and regular fenestration to flanking bays.

SW ELEVATION: centre door at basement with variety of openings to outer bays (see Notes), regular fenestration to 3 bays of each floor above.

NE ELEVATION: 3 windows to each floor, basement with small timber door to outer left.

9- and 12-pane glazing pattern in timber sash and case windows. Grey slates and cast-iron rooflights. Droved ashlar stacks.

INTERIOR: good decorative scheme in place including galleried circular hall with classical cornice and frieze, further swagged frieze to glazed conical cupola. 6-panelled architraved doors radiating from central hall. Drawing room with Adam style carved fireplace (not original); further timber fireplaces and cast-iron grates. Kitchen with large arched fireplace and bread oven 'C H & G NICOLL MAKERS DUNDEE'. Vaulted cellars.

Statement of Special Interest

Group with Lodge House, Coach House and Walled Garden. The original Seasyde House dated from the mid 17th century, and belonged to the father of Admiral Duncan of Camperdown. By the middle of the 18th century the estate had passed to the Hunters, a local farming family, who built the current house. Paterson drawings amongst Camperdown papers, dated 1797, show a larger house of similar plan, and the now demolished 'Seggieden' was also similar. Parts of the basement toward the west probably belong to the original house. The current owners are connected with the Rothes family, of Ballinbreich Castle and Leslie House in Fife. The fine pyramidally-coped square-section ashlar gatepiers were imported during the late 20th century.

About Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. 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 legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

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 1997 Act. 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 subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
