Statement of Interest

This is a good example of an early 19th century classical tenement situated on a main road in Arbroath. The classical detailing adds interest to the street elevation and the building is a significant addition to the streetscape of this area of Arbroath.

The classical style was often used in buildings of the early 19th century as it was thought to convey a sense of dignity. Arbroath was developing at this time and the style would have been seen to be fitting for a building on the main street.
