Statement of Interest

Group with 20 Ann Street. Built for the North of Scotland Bank, this fine Renaissance building dominates its corner site facing both Ann Street and Evan Street. The first floor flatted dwelling (No 29 Evan Street) was formerly the manager's accommodation. The separately listed No 20 Ann Street was built as a solicitor's office. James Matthews, with William Lawrie, also designed the Renaissance style Stonehaven Town Hall in Allardice Street.
