Statement of 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.
