Statement of Interest

Prominently situated at a crossroad on one of Stonehaven's main thoroughfares, the fine detailing of this turn of the 20th century villa reflects the work of local family joiner Robert Thomson & Sons of Bridgefield who built Ewen Burn as a family home. Only five families have lived here in approximately one hundred years. The 'tenement of land' was feued by Robert Glegg from Robert Barclay Allardice as early as 1864. Both ground floor fireplaces are imported.
