One of only a handful of dwellings in Aberchirder to retain its original long garden feu dating from when the village was formalised in its grid-plan layout during the late 18th and early 19th century.

The ground floor was converted for use as a car showroom during 1970s and subsequently converted back to residential in the 1980s with the doorway to the W gable now forming a window.
