Statement of Interest

The extra roof stack and attic window to the outer right bay shows this to have been a later addition. Despite the bull-faced render to the front elevation and numerous alterations and additions to the rear the building remains a well-proportioned 18th century provincial town house at its core. And as such remarkable survivor of the late nineteenth century rebuilding of Dunblane High Street. A carved panel with coat-of-arms and date described in the original list description as being almost obliterated has latterly been harled and a burglar alarm fitted over.
