Edenholme is a good example of a well-detailed, turn of the 20th century suburban villa, and is prominently sited on one of the main thoroughfares into Stonehaven. Now (2005) in use as a residential home. It has distinctive detailing which sets it apart from the more commonplace at this date such as towering stacks, sweeping eaves and over-size over-door pediment, together with some distinguishing interior details.
