Abstract:
A historic building survey carried out at Howden House, Livingston, West Lothian. The work was undertaken to fulfil a planning condition (0403/LBC/06). Howden House is a Category Grade B Listed Building. The main three story block has five bays and two story wings on each end. Howden House was completed in about 1770, possibly for Thomas Farquharson of Howden. In 1834 the house was purchased by Henry Raeburn, son of artist Sir Henry Raeburn. The survey showed that the building had undergone a number of major developmental phases since it was first constructed. The results confirm that a great deal of modification and remodelling and repair work had been carried out over the last 242 years. Most of the period features had been removed with only the main stair surviving which probably dates to the early 19th century. The key development phases. The east and west wings are major additions that were constructed shortly after the main core block, with the East Wing being a single storey structure that was heightened at an unknown date. The two-storey West Wing was built in a single phase. Much of the current footprint of the building has not altered radically since the early to mid19th century. A programme of test-pitting was aso undertaken following submission of the survey repport.
