Statement of Interest

Springbank Terrace is a good example of a simple, city centre granite terrace, with the principal elevations facing long front gardens. It is an important part of the 19th century suburban development of Aberdeen and the simple Classical detailing is typical of this period of the city's expansion. An interesting variety of housing types is incorporated into the rational street elevation, with the Terrace accommodating both tenements and individual houses. Much of the original character of this early terrace remains with some retaining their garden walls and gatepiers. Some gardens have been altered to accommodate parking spaces.
