Mapwork and consultation with Edinburgh) confuse an apparently straightforward building history for this property. The building, with right-hand projecting bay, is clearly there on 1853 OS map, but on the 1896 OS the left bay does not appear to be there. EDINBURGH says it has 'a nicely detailed baronial extension by Reid and Forbes, 1935,' but there is no ground on which this could have been built, nor any sign of demolition; certainly it is no longer there.
