Statement of Interest

NOTES: The land which Seaside Place and the surrounding area is built upon was acquired by the 11th Earl of Morton in 1725. It was laid out throughout the late 18th and 19th centuries, and is shown on maps of this date as 'New Town'. The area was built to provide a fashionable place to live set aside from Easter and Wester Aberdour and to cater for the growing market of well-heeled and discerning tourists during the 19th century. 2 Seaside Place reflects this air of gentility with its refined detailing. The garden to the rear is fairly substantial and runs NW terminating at Manse Street.
