Statement of Interest

B-Group with 2 & 4 and 6 & 8 Loanhead Street. Loanhead Street is primarily villas and tenemented accommodation overlooking a public green. The green houses an ornamental fountain commemorating the The area, previously fields, was developed in the early 20th century. Larger public buildings, such as the Dick Institute, the Academy and Technical School, were built along with Loanhead School at the bottom of the street (the foundation stone was laid by Andrew Carnegie). Around this street are many 1? -storey pattern book cottages constructed en-masse by local builders. This villa was built around the same time as Andrew was undertaking commercial work in Bank Street and housing in Holehouse Road. It shares stylistic similarities with a number of his other buildings. It also takes inspiration from the larger villas in London Road, a number of which had additional bays added late into the 19th century. Listed as a good example of an early 20th century villa by a local architect.
