Statement of Interest

NOTES: The doorpiece to the main elevation is one of the finest in Aberdour only bettered by the Gibbsian doorpieces of Aberdour House and 36 Main Street (see separate listings). It is possible that originally the house was more than 1 dwelling house as with 68 High Street (see separate listings) with the door and window arrangements changed at a later time to reflect its conversion to a single dwelling place, the present internal arrangement does not reflect this however. The steeply pitched roof and skews suggest that at one time the house was thatched.
