Statement of Interest

Fawsyde House is an interesting example of a well designed late 19th century house. Although shown in its present form on the 2nd edition OS map of 1901, the earlier, smaller Fawsyde House, probably incorporated into the present house, is shown on the 1st edition OS map of 1863. The Picturesque appearance of the house has been

altered by the removal of its highly decorative dressings, shown in an earlier photograph, such

as the ridge cresting, the barge boards with pendants and the 1st floor window guards.
