Description

Later l8th century. 2-storey, irregular 4-bay range with pend entrance at right (W). Harled, painted margins. No 49 as compact 3-bay shop front dating from circa 1835. Centre entrance closely flanked by panelled windows, the doorway and windows divided by pilasters with carved composite capitals. Paired windows above with centre wallhead

chimney stack. Pend, single ground and 2 lst floor windows in remainder of building. 12-pane glazing in all lst floor timber sash and case windows. End and ridge stacks; corrugated asbestos roof.

Statement of Interest

Unusual shop front incorporating pilasters with composite capitals. These are similar in design to those decorating former Banff Academy, a stylistic feature much used by William Robertson, architect, Elgin. The front wallhead chimney stack is characteristic of some early houses in Banff and Portsoy. Entry to No 53 is through pend.
