Description

Mid 19th century, possibly incorporating earlier (18th century) fabric. 2-storey and raised basement, 3-bay classically-detailed house, converted to commercial premises mid 20th century, in irregular terrace. Cement render with evidence of ashlar dressings. Eaves course.

E (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: window openings to outer bays of basement, ground floor with steps up to pilastered doorpiece at centre and windows in flanking bays, regular fenestration to 1st floor.

W (WAGGON ROAD) ELEVATION: largely obscured by boundary wall.

All openings blocked. Corrugated metal roof.

INTERIOR: completely removed.

Statement of Interest

Situated in the heart of the commercial area close to the harbour of Bo'ness, this former merchant's house would have been ideally placed immediately opposite the category 'A' listed Dymock's Buildings and adjoining a late 18th century tobacco warehouse, now Bo'ness Library, listed category 'B'. When taken over by the local Co-operative Society (mid 20th century) the house interior was completely removed and the walls cement rendered to comply with health and hygiene regulations for food production. Now (2003) used as a store.
