Statement of Interest

A typical example of a smart cottage villa, but where many buildings in Beith of this date and earlier have been considerably altered, this house has virtually all of its original external features intact. Its bracketed eaves, slate roof, original fenestration, stacks and gables add character; the apex stack to the rear gable is also of note.
