Description

Late 18th century with later alterations (see Notes). Former laundry block comprising single-storey and attic, 3-bay, rectangular-plan cottage flanked by lower single storey wings; 2-bay to W and 3-bay to E. Whinstone rubble with pale sandstone ashlar dressings. Cottage with pair of mullioned bipartite dormers breaking eaves. Some mullioned bipartite windows to flanking wings.

Plate-glass to timber sash and case windows. Grey slate. Coped skews and shouldered skewputts. Coped end stacks. Clay cans. Cast-iron rainwater goods.

Statement of Interest

B-Group with the remains of Carmichael House, HBNUM 44568 and Butlers Cottage, HBNUM 717 (see separate listings).

This is a good, well-detailed example of an 18th century estate laundry building that has been altered during the mid 19th century at which time the detached 18th century wings of Carmichael House were linked by a substantial Baronial addition (now partly demolished). The cottage has more recently been internally refurbished as holiday home accomodation.
