Predominantly 4-pane glazing in timber sash and case windows. Graded grey slates. Stepped stone skews; Decoratively corniced ashlar stacks with octagonal cans.

Statement of Interest

Laverockbank Terrace was built on the eastern edge of the grounds of Laverockbank House (demolished). Drawings for several of the houses there (but not this one) are to be found in the Peddie and Kinnear archive at NMRS. Stylistically it would probably be safe to assume that this house was designed by John Dick Peddie.
