Circa 1800, altered at ground. 2-storey, 4-bay house closing regular terrace to NW. Roughly coursed and squared rubble with raised margins at 1st floor.
S (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: 4 windows to each floor (bays do not correspond), with evidence of blocked and altered openings at ground; 3 small rooflights.
Modern glazing throughout. Grey slates. Coped harled stacks with thackstanes and cans; ashlar-coped skews.
B-Group with Nos 3, 5, 7 and 9 Arbuthnott Street forming traditional terraced runs. 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 these terraces remain important contributors 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. Nos 11 and 13 have lost their traditional layout with removal of doors from the principal elevation, but with their original roofline and massing remain an integral element of the vernacular streetscape.
