Early to earlier 19th century. L-plan greenfield Improvement steading with hayloft and cart arches with further detached single bay building. Sandstone rubble, pantiles.
E (STREET) ELEVATION: formerly 3 cart arches to ground floor with simple hayloft openings above. Cart arches to right with segmental heads, timber 2-leaf doors, arch to left now with concrete infill to form bus stop shelter.
COURTYARD ELEVATION: wing to left with hayloft openings. Projecting wing to right with some openings blocked, further attached lower projecting wing with blank end elevation with truncated gable stack.
E ELEVATION: low single storey building immediately to the SW with central timber door. Small single high opening to rear. Steeply pitched roof. Truncated gable stacks to N and S.
BOUNDARY WALLS: to N and S, rubble coped sandstone wall.
A good and remarkably intact example of the Fife vernacular tradition with its use of sandstone and pantile materials. The steading now forms an important and distinctive part of the streetscape in Ceres into which it is incorporated to the degree of providing a bus shelter.
The buildings appear on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map and were then, as now, bounded by the Cupar Road on the right and a stream to the left. The survival of agricultural buildings situated within settlements is now unusual.
