Matthew Steele, 1907, ground floor 1979 by William A Cadell Architects to Matthew Steele design (see Notes). 2-storey and attic, single bay shop with flatted dwellings above in Edwardian Free Style. Polished ashlar and harl with ashlar dressings; harl with stone cills to rear. Ground floor cornice. Voussoired broad segmental arch; stone mullions.
S (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: ground floor with broad segmental arch infilled with decoratively-astragalled part-glazed timber door with multi-pane fanlight and flanking fixed display windows over tiled base, all surmounted by broader multi-pane fanlight.
N (NORTH STREET) ELEVATION: boarded timber door to left of centre at ground, small window immediately to left and tall tripartite window to right, further tripartite windows to right at 1st floor and to flat-roofed dormer above, small modern rooflight close to ridge at left.
Multi-pane upper sashes over plate glass lower sashes to 1st and 2nd floors, plate glass glazing elsewhere, all in timber sash and case windows. Modern (1979) pantiles. Cavetto-coped harled stack with cans. Roof swept to form broad overhanging eaves flanking attic window to S.
Matthew Steele's design, finally executed in 1979 by William Cadell, was originally built with a traditional shopfront for John Paris and run subsequently as 'Lipton's Grocery' store. The form of the arch appears more of Secession inspiration than Scottish (cf arcaded shopfronts, Elgin). This would be in keeping with Steele's portfolio.
