Statement of Interest

The house does not appear on the 1857-8 OS map. The drawings on the Central Library, Dundee show the extension of the porch housing a cloakroom and toilet, and alterations to the staircase including the addition of a triple arch, 17th century style screen at the landing with new marching balusters. Ground floor plans suggest the kitchen was removed from the east at this time to the new wing at the north west, the former kitchen being converted to a billiards room. Drawings dated 1907show that new wrought-iron gates and quadrants, including stone ball-finials were propsosed at this time. The house is sub-divided into 2 units.
