Statement of Interest

An early and substantial villa typical of the Perth Road area of Dunblane. Of particular interest because despite its proximity to the town centre and main Perth Road, the villa has retained its original policies and boundary wall, whereas most other grounds in the area have been subdivided for new building lots.
