Statement of Special Interest

Wandel House is a good example of an earlier 19th century square-plan farmhouse with some good stone detailing and in its original setting, of a man-made designed landscape, with rolling lawns leading to a large ornamental lake. The large square-plan steading court to the rear is in its original plan form although has been converted to separate dwellings (3) with various new openings. The steading makes a good contribution to the overall setting of the farmhouse.

The 1st edition map shows an entrance drive coming from the main road straight to the house with a pond to the side and the complex named as 'Wandel Mill'. By the map of 1892 a new driveway (in use) has been opened to the N of the house with a separate road to the S leading to the steading, both either side of the enlarged lake with island which had been developed to the front of the house. The lake retains remnants of pumps and a sluice gate.

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.
