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.

Statement of Interest

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.
