Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Braeval Farmhouse is a late 18th century, 2-storey farmhouse with a long single storey wing extending from the E gable, forming a very long, narrow rectangular-plan footprint. The principal elevation is S facing, with the rear (N) elevation facing the Aberfoyle-Callander road. It is a good example of a simple vernacular late 18th century farmhouse which retains much of its original external form and character.

The S elevation of the house is 3-bay, with a central timber-panelled door with a letterbox fanlight. Extending to the right is the single storey section, of 7 irregular bays. The 2 bays adjoining the house form part of the dwelling, the right-hand one forming a secondary entrance with a small gabled porch. To the centre of the range is a storage room, and the easternmost 4 bays are of 2 windows and 2 glazed 2-leaf doors (non-original), and may possibly have been used in the 19th century as a labourer's bothy.

The rear elevation of the 2-storey house has 1 small window to each floor, with a later, slightly larger window inserted to the left at ground floor level. The rear elevation of the single storey range is blank other than an asymmetrical double window to the far right, probably inserted in the early 20th century when a small projecting bay (which shows on the 1st and 2nd edition OS maps) was removed.

Interior:

The interior of the house has been modernised and retains little original character, although the layout appears largely unchanged.

Materials:

Harled rubble to 2-storey section; white-painted rubble with massive rubble quoins to single-storey range. Pitched graded slate roof; stone skews and skewputts to house. 4 or 8 pane glazed timber sash and case windows. 2 coped gable-head stacks with circular cans to 2-storey house.
