Statement of Interest

No 25 is a fine example of an early town house and a valuable addition to Belmont Street's wide variety of interesting buildings. Originally comprising 3 bays, the building was extended by a further bay in the early 19th century with raised quoin stones dividing the later addition from the original. At this time, the bowed addition to the rear was added, making a significant contribution to the wider townscape when viewed from Union Terrace on the opposite side of the Denburn. Belmont Street was open pasture running alongside the Denburn until the 1770's from which point it was feued for building and construction took place rapidly on the site.
