Description

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

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.
