Circa 1900. Single storey and attic, 3-bay cottage retaining unusually fine detail and interior, and paired with No 23 Slug Road. Heavily stugged Aberdeen bond ashlar with tooled ashlar dressings; coursed, squared rubble to sides and rear. Base and eaves courses. Stone mullions and chamfered arrises. Decorative cast-iron finials to dormer windows.
SW (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: symmetrical. Centre bay with part-glazed 9-panelled timber door, flanking pilasters, narrow outer lights and pilastered jambs, all under dentilled cornice and 3-part fanlight worded 'ROWANDALE'; small piended wallhead dormer window above. Flanking bays each with canted dormer window under reducing slate roof abutting base of smaller dormer with polygonal roof. Stepped ashlar garage with vertically-boarded part-glazed timber door adjoining at outer left.
SE ELEVATION: broad gabled elevation with single windows to left and right of centre.
4-pane glazing pattern in timber sash and case windows. Grey slates. Coped ashlar gablehead stacks with full-complement of polygonal cans. Ashlar-coped skews with mitre skewputts. Square-section, cast-iron downpipes with decorative rainwater hoppers and fixings.
INTERIOR: not seen 2005, but with good decorative scheme in place (see Notes). Encaustic-tiled hall floor with screen door.
BOUNDARY WALLS AND GATES: low coped harled boundary walls with ironwork gates.
This unusually intact, well-detailed cottage is grouped with No 25 Slug Road. They are situated close to the southern end of Slug Road, the main route into the town centre from Banchory. The interior detail is similar to that at No 23. Rowandale was owned, in 1923, by Miss Helen D Mitchell, and No 25 (then Ashley House) was owned by her brother.
