Statement of Interest

Nos 30-34 Schoolhill is a good local example of later 19th century residential building occupying a prominent position on high ground at Schoolhill. Its Baroque detailing provides a valuable contribution to the streetscape.

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.
