Statement of Interest

Despite various additions, No 22 still possesses a degree of architectural interest. One of a group of 10 similar houses forming Cammo Crescent (some semi-detached), this imposing house retains many original features - in particular the decorative rainwater goods, sash and case windows, timber detailing beneath gableheads and timber panelled door. Together with No 20, this has been selected as the best example of its type (see separate list entry for No 22 Cammo Crescent). P R McLaren, architect, of 34 St Andrew Square, Edinburgh.
