early 19th century exterior walls with service

buildings. Random rubble with ashlar coping.

N end of W wall with fine wrought-iron gate bearing

entwined intials at centre. Brick lining to N wall.

Lean-to row of tools sheds and ancillary buildings,

early 19th century abutting on external side to N.

TOOL SHEDS: abutting high N wall of walled garden, and

facing kitchen garden. Slightly advanced bay to E raised

in gabled dormer with doorway; 16 bays to right with

similarly advanced doorway to W end and with one doorway

widened. 12-pane glazing pattern to sash and case

windows to W row of buildings with polygonal ashlar and

brick stacks at ridge. Grey slates and some asbestos

roofing.

KITCHEN GARDEN: low rubble walled enclosure to N within

heating chambers on each side.

Statement of Special Interest

Currently (1987) unused but evidently of grandeur and extensive variety in 19th century. Roxburgh archive records mason's account for hot-house, ice house, sundial, peach house and repairing kennels, building gate

pillars and repairing deer park dyke in 1810-12, probably referring to works at Broxmouth Park.

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 statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. 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.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned 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. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. 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 is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
