Description

Circa 1890, G H Kinnear and J M Dick Peddie. Single-storey and basement, 3-bay, rectangular-plan house situated on ground sloping steeply to N. Red sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings. Pedimented dormer-headed windows breaking eaves. Timber panelled door in pilastered doorcase at 1st floor, reached by forestair to centre bay. In-and-out quoins.

Predominantly 12-pane glazing to timber sash and case windows. Slated roof; end stacks; stone skews.

Statement of Special Interest

Part of a B-Group including 'Drygrange House (Grangehall Care Home, Formerly St Andrew's College) Including Garden Terrace Walls to South'; 'Drygrange, Walled Garden'; ' Drygrange, North Lodge Including Gates, Gatepiers and Quadrant Walls'; 'Drygrange, South Lodge Including Gates, Gatepiers and Quadrant Walls'; 'Drygrange, House to North of Steading'; 'Drygrange, Stables and Steading' and 'Drygrange, Summerhouse'.

Located a short distance NE of the former Drygrange steading, this house was possibly built for the resident groom as part of the extension of the steading and stable range in 1889. It is a distinctive split-level house of red sandstone, notable for its principle entance at 1st floor with pedimented dormer breaking eaves making good use of its sloping site. Its contextual association with the steading adds to its interest, as an integral part of the wider grouping.

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.
