INTERIOR: (seen, 2012). Original room layout largely evident, with some alteration (see Notes). Straight staircase to both properties.
This little externally altered, late 18th property with its distinctive nepus gable and rare survival of classical doorpiece, forms a significant addition to the streetscape of the important planned village of Stanley. The large shop window to the street elevation of the property is a interesting feature and the 2 attic windows to the rear of the property add further interest.
The original function of the property is unknown at present, but one photograph, of around 1900-1920 shows No 42 as the Stanley Institute. No 44 was originally 2 flats, with an open entrance close. These have now been converted into one property, with the open close forming the internal hallway to the property.
The village of Stanley was laid out in 1784 by James Stobie, the Atholl Estate factor, to provide housing for the workers at the nearby Stanley Mills (see separate listing). The village was laid out in a grid pattern, with King Street being one of the main streets.
