Description

Late 18th to early 19th century. 2-storey 3-bay house with low ground floor windows; plain central door with raised ashlar surround. Squared and snecked, stugged yellow sandstone with modern harl; quoin margins evident.

Boarded-up fenestration (1979 photograph shows plate glass sashes, astragals probably knocked out). Grey slates; modern concrete tiles to rear. Straigh skews; stone ridge; coped end stacks (no remaining cans).

SE (REAR) ELEVATION: altered, with non-traditional extensions.

INTERIOR: not seen (2003).

Statement of Interest

Although semi-derelict (2003), this building retains good vernacular characteristics. Its proportions are subtle with the ground floor windows slightly wider than those above; the windows have no margins. The modern cement harl on the facade has replaced a traditional lime harl or lime wash. The position of the building on Whitehall, near the centre of the historic burgh of Maybole, is prominent and the building contributes much by delineating the streetscape due to its immediate proximity to the road.
