Statement of Interest

B-Group with 17-29 (odd numbers) Ferryhill Place and 2-18, 20-30 and 32-36 (even numbers) Ferryhill Place (see separate listings). Brogden suggests this the earlier section of Ferryhill Place could be by Archibald Simpson, it is similar in style to his nearby Marine Terrace and Bon Accord Square (see separate listings). The W end of the terrace (see separate listing) bears more resemblance to Caledonian Place (see separate listing), rubble walls with finely finished dressings. However the corniced and consoled doorways, eaves and base courses and use of dormers unites the two halves, framed by the elegant deep front gardens.
