Statement of Interest

This house was built between 1932 and 1949. The detailing is too severely executed for the house to be attributed to Robert Lorimer, but the style is pure Lorimer/Kinross Arts and Crafts, and it may be by T Aikman Swan who continued to work in this vein on leaving Lorimer's office.
