Statement of Interest

Formerly listed as '32 Barclay Street and 25 Market Street'. Although altered, No 25 is the sole survivor in anything like its original form at the NW corner of Stonehaven's Market Square. The blind Venetian window detail can be seen on a number of fine buildings in Stonehaven's New Town. False timber exterior shutters at 1st floor distract from intended classical dignity.
