Statement of Interest

An unusually sophisticated design retaining original features which include the decoratively-astragalled fanlight and blind Venetian window, a feature evident on a number of Stonehaven's finer early 19th century buildings. Evan Street forms part of the grid-iron plan for Robert Barclay of Ury's 'New Town' where building commenced in 1797 on land of the Arduthie Estate, purchased by his father in 1759. Feu purchasers were awarded privileges which included 'the right to quarry stones from the Brachans, the ridge of rocks projecting into the bay, peat from moss and clay from the Milldens of Cowie' (Christie p15).
