1811. 2-storey, wide 3-bay house with later projecting gabled

bay at rear. The house is flanked on both sides by the N wall

of the walled garden, into which the S elevation projects

slightly. Brick frontage, harled flanks at rear.

Symmetrical S elevation with wide centre projecting canted

bay with centre entrance and small windows in flanking

facets; wider ground floor windows in outer bays; all 1st

floor windows segmental-headed and close under eaves; outer

windows are 3-light, the remainder of 2 lights, divided by

thick moulded wooden mullions, and with multi-pane glazing.

Pair coped ridge stacks; piended slate roof raised over 1st

floor windows.

REAR: slightly projecting rear centre bays, now fronted by

later wing with entrance in re-entrant angle.

Statement of Special Interest

The raised 'eyebrows' of the front roofline and the

segmental-headed 1st floor windows are reminiscent of Sussex

traditional building. This stylisticc influence may have

come from the Goodwood Estate, Sussex, property of the Dukes

of Richmond and Gordon.

Estate accounts refer to 'new house for gardener', presumably

the head gardener.

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.
