47 and 49 Waverley Place are quite different to the surrounding terraces, which were primarily designed by Archibald Simpson (see separate listings). The Dutch inspired curvilinear gables both to principal and rear elevations are particularly unusual. Of note also are the decorative stacks which surmount them. The house has been adapted in the manner of Archibald Simpson, by the addition of canted windows to the ground floor of the principal elevation.
