James Thomson, 1903. Single bay, 2-storey property with shop at ground. Stugged ashlar with polished ashlar dressings, harl to sides and rear. Ground floor frieze and cornice. Bracketed cill. Stone mullions.
N (PRINCIPAL) ELEVVATION: ground floor with traditional shop with in-canted 2-leaf part-glazed timber door and plate glass fanlight to right and fixed display window to left, modern fascia to frieze above giving way to centre-pedimented tripartite window with moulded apron and pulvinated frieze at 1st floor, and relief carved fleur-de-lis in gablehead.
E ELEVATION: asymmetrically-fenestrated elevation with variety of elements including door to outer left at ground.
S (REAR) ELEVATION: plain gabled elevation with satellite dish in gablehead.
Plate glass glazing in timber sash and case windows. Grey slates. Coped harled stacks; stepped ashlar-coped skews with carved skewputts.
Remarkable for its 1st floor gable, and unusual in its long form with 2 blank elevations and a third poorly lit. Listed in particular for its contribution to the streetscape. Local architect James Thomson designed a number of buildings in South Street including the fine Renaissance tenement at Nos 54-60.
