Overview

An excellent development opportunity to create a unique private residence with the potential for new build within the grounds. The property is located to the south of the town centre on the edge of the built-up area.

Ladyfield West was designed Walter Newall in 1812 and is Category B-listed. It is a significant building due to the importance of its architect, its Greek Revival style and early date. It is relatively rare and is one of a small number of Greek Revival urban villas which survive in Scotland.

It is a single storey with concealed attic on a raised basement which faces east all of which is set in a wooded area. The principal elevation has a distinctive classical central pedimented Ionic porch, with the entrance behind flanked pilasters and a semi-circular fanlight (blocked) above. It is predominantly polished ashlar dressed stone in upper part, and rusticated ashlar to the basement level, all of which has been painted.

Exterior windows are largely blocked. Much of the interior detailing has been removed, though the general early 19th century room layout is evident.

Following initial consultation with Historic Environment Scotland there is a strong preference to see Ladyfield West returned to its' former use as an individual dwelling house set within its original landscaped garden.
