Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Symmetrical 2-storey, 3-bay rectangular-plan house. Listed in recognition of being a little altered (to its principal (E) elevation) 18th century house, contributing to the streetscape of the N end of Bridgend. Probably originally built as a cottage in the 18th century and later raised up to incorporate a 1st floor, the house sits below the current road level leading to the bridge. The house makes a good grouping with the nearby listed Teithview House and Callander Bridge (see separate listings).

The relatively small size of the windows and close spacing of the bays to the principal (E) elevation are indicative of the house's early date, the rear elevation has been largely altered. Cast iron railings to the principal elevation are fixed to a retaining wall which is incorporated into surviving fabric of the flanking wall of the original bridge built in 1764, the bridge was rebuilt in 1908 (see separate listing).

Interior

Admission was not obtained at time of resurvey (2004).

Materials

Rendered walls with margined windows. Modern timber and glazed door, uPVC glazing throughout. Pitched grey slate roof with a pair of tri-partite rooflights to principal elevation. Ashlar stacks with various cans.

Statement of Interest

Given the house's close proximity to the bridge it is possible that it was built around the same time the bridge was constructed. However this is not supported on the map of 1770 entitled 'Plan of Callander part of annexed estate' produced for the Commissioners of Forfeited Estates as there are no signs of a settlement at Bridgend at this time.
