Late 19th century, redeveloped by Aitken & Turnbull of Hawick, late 20th century. 3-storey, 3-bay terraced tenement with symmetrical 5-bay shop at ground, set on sloping site. Painted ashlar to shopfront; tooled cream sandstone ashlar above, with raised polished ashlar dressings; harled to rear. Stepped base; corniced shopfront; raised, architraved lintel course forming basket-arched arcade beneath corniced eaves. Raised, moulded quoin strips. Regular fenestration to front, with architraved, roll-moulded, stop-chamfered, basket-arched margins and projecting cills; irregular fenestration to rear. Central half-glazed, timber-panelled door with fanlight to shopfront, flanked by 2 windows to right and left.
Plate glass windows to shopfront with single horizontal glazing bar to inner windows; predominantly 4-pane glazing in timber sash-and-case windows elsewhere. Grey slate roof. Coped gablehead stacks with circular clay cans. Cast-iron rainwater goods.
B-Group comprises Nos 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 19, 2, 4, 6, 10 and 12 Howegate - see separate list entries. Interest here lies both in the original buildings and in the irregular street which they make up - its curved form being of particular note since it is said to follow the medieval building line.
Comprehensive redevelopment of Howegate from 1978 onwards by Aitken Turnbull resulted in two Civic Trust Awards (1982 and 1986), as well as a Borders Regional Council Award for Conservation (1986).
A building is shown on this site in earlier maps than the 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey of 1897, but its style indicates a later- or late-19th-century date. List description revised following resurvey (2008).
