Description

C G H Kinnear, 1889. 2-storey, 3-bay lodge house with single-storey lean-to adjoining E gable (former washhouse). Red, squared and snecked sandstone rubble with overhanging eaves. Gabled timber porch to centre. Dormer windows breaking eaves on front elevation. Lightly moulded barge-boards with ball pendentives at gable ends, dormers and gabled porch to centre, principal elevation. Bi-partite windows to outer bays flanking porch and single window above.

GATEPIERS: pair of pale sandstone ashlar gatepiers, fielded and corniced, with large decorative obelisk finials. Wrought iron gates, 1906. Coped corsed rubble quadrant wall to N and S of gates.

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

Statement of Special Interest

Part of a B-Group comprising '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 at the northen entrance to the former Drygrange House estate, the North Lodge is a comparatively large and well detailed example of its type of red sandstone, notable for its broad overhanging timber bargeboarding and porch. Originally the porch was open with timber supporting columns, later enclosed making use of non-traditional single-pane glazing. The house was formerly occupied by the factor of the estate, adding to its historical interest. A later, non-traditional corrugated-roofed garage addition has been made to the W gable (road) elevation. The obelisk gatepier finials and wrought-iron gates of 1906 are contemporaneous with the South Lodge and with the main gate of the walled garden (see separate listings), adding to the wider contextual interest of the Drygrange estate.

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.
