Description

Late 18th century. 4-storey and attic, 5-bay tenement building with shops to ground floor. Rendered rubble, re-clad at 1st floor, grey slate roof. Principal elevation with margined windows with plate glass glazing in timber sash and case frames, earlier 20th century metal-framed continuous glazing to 1st floor. Lead-covered ashlar-coped skews, brick ridge stacks, coped and shouldered wallhead stack to centre left of front elevation.

FRONT ELEVATION: broad pend entry to centre left flanked by modern shopfronts. 2 small piended dormer windows.

REAR ELEVATION: pend entry to centre right, various windows above, canted stairwell to left masked at lower floors by 2-storey, 6-bay wing.

INTERIOR: upper floors incorporated into 70-73 High Street and Gardyne's Land; some plain cornices and panelled reveals and shutters retained. Former billiard room with high coombed ceiling and row of decorative circular air vents. Shallow brick vaulting.

Statement of Special Interest

A Group with 66, 67 High Street, 70 - 73 High Street and Gardyne's Land, and 75, 76 High Street.

This tenement forms part of a very interesting early group which includes the 16th century Gardyne's Land, the oldest known domestic building to survive within the Dundee Burgh. During the early years of the 21st century Nos 68, 69, 70-73 and Gardyne's Land, and 75,76 have been restored and are now (2007) accessed from the Gardyne's Land block. The billiard room had been used as Keiller's staff canteen, and then as a snooker club since the late 1860s.

List description revised 2007.

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. Other than the name or address of a listed building, further details are provided for information purposes only. Historic Environment Scotland does not accept any liability for any loss or damage suffered as a consequence of inaccuracies in the information provided. 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.
