Description

Circa 1800, 2 storey and attic house over basement, 3 bays.

Red rubble, squared in east front facade, with contrasting

tooled sandstone dressings. Centre door approached by short

flight steps. Pair later double casement dormers with curved

heads.

Large earlier 19th century rear wing of 2 storeys and attic,

all harled with tooled margins; 2 diminutive piended dormers;

piended roof. Mainly 4- and 12- pane glazing; coped end

stacks to main house and large hipped wallhead stack to rear

wing; slate roofs.

Various single storey extensions of different dates.

Gate piers; Pair square channelled ashlar gate piers with

coursing accentuated with contrasting painting; shallow

pyramidal caps with diminutive ball finials.

The boundary between the parishes of Ardersier and Petty

runs through Ardersier Village along Stuart Street.

No. 2 Stuart Street and The Old Toll House, Ardersier, are

to be found in the Petty Parish list.

The 18th century development of Ardersier village as a

service and residential area to Fort George is reflected

architecturally by the regular housing each side of the

High Street, with both front elevations and gable ends.

Despite some intervening modern single storey properties,

nos 11-16 High Street are included in a B group for the

importance of their gable ends to the street frontage.

Statement of Special Interest

Ruins of early 18th century lectern dovecote close to house; approximately 600 nesting boxes, mural vents, rat courses;

much overgrown with vegetation.

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.
