Statement of Interest

B-group with Nos 3, 5, 11 and 13 Arbuthnott Street, forming a traditional terraced run. Former list description notes that the roof was pantiled with slate skirting. The north side of Arbuthnott Street was fully developed by 1823 when Wood's Town Plan was drawn, with the 18th century Mill Inn and its associated stabling to the south. Little has changed since then, apart from the addition of Sir Robert Rowand Anderson's fine Episcopal Church (listed category 'A') in 1875 and the White Bridge (also listed) in 1879, and the street remains an important contributor to Stonehaven's early streetscapes, probably the least altered of all its early streets. A recent (2004) newly built house, replacing some single storey sheds, at the west end of the terrace sits comfortably through judicious employment of traditional materials and design
