Statement of Interest

B-Group with Nos 3-15 and 17-29 (odd numbers) Ferryhill Place and Nos 2-18 and 32-36 (even numbers) Ferryhill Place (see separate listings). Brogden suggests that the earlier W section of Ferryhill Place could be by Archibald Simpson, it is similar in style to his nearby Marine Terrace and Bon Accord Square (see separate listings). This central block and Nos 17-29 Ferryhill Place bear more resemblance to Caledonian Place (see separate listing), rubble walls with finely finished dressings. Whilst the terminating block to the far W is a more detailed version of the block to the E. However the corniced and consoled doorways, eaves and base courses and use of dormers unites the two halves, framed by the elegant deep front gardens.
