Description

Earlier 19th century, incorporating earlier fabric. Two-storey, three-bay farmhouse. Harled with quoin strips, stone cills.

South (principal) elevation: symmetrical. Central entrance flanked by single windows and bipartite windows in outer bays. Three evenly spaced windows close to eaves at first floor. Low pantiled rubble building (steading) to outer right.

North elevation: three irregularly disposed windows at ground floor and lean-to porch with door on return to right in bay to outer, two windows at first floor.

West elevation: gabled elevation with window at each floor.

Four- and twelve-pane glazing patterns in timber sash and case windows. Grey slates. Coped harled chimeny stacks with thackstanes and some cans, ashlar-coped skews.

Steading: U-plan steading with boundary wall to west, and two piended courtyard ranges oriented north-south. Semi-derelict; pantiled, whinstone rubble with some cherry caulking and ashlar margins. Doors of boarded timber. Stables to northwest range retain loose box divisions. Lintel immediately to east of house dated '1743'. Evidence of former horse mill to north elevation.

Statement of Interest

A little altered example of a fine traditional post-improvement steading, of which Fife once boasted a large number.

The previous listed building record (written in 1999) referred to a stone porch on the main entrance. This was removed around 2004.

Listed building record updated in 2021.
