Description

Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Dreadnought Place was constructed circa 1898 and is a 2-storey and attic 4-bay harled tenement with a pair of shops to the ground floor and recessed stair towers to the North and South elevations. Prominently sited in the Main Street of Killin, Dreadnought Place is a good example of this type of tenemental building which began to be built in Killin in the late 19th century. It respects the local architectural character with its timber bargeboarding and overhanging eaves but incorporates several more metropolitan late 19th century details. The oriel windows at the outer bays are particularly unusual for the local area as are string courses. Where the original glazing pattern remains this adds substantially to the character of the building. The original washhouse for the property remains to the rear of the building. It contributes positively to the streetscape in Killin.

The largely symmetrical principal (East) elevation has a pair of shops with plate glass windows to the ground floor with recessed entrances. Above, the outer bays are composed of tripartite oriel windows breaking the eaves with pitched gables. The inner bays have single light windows, those to the attic floor breaking the eaves with pitched gables. String courses separate the floors of the building. Recessed to the North and South elevation elevation of the building are the 2-storey and attic stair towers with 4-panel timber entrance doors with 3-pane rectangular fanlights above.

To the rear (West elevation) there is a monopitch later extension to the left.

INTERIOR

(Top flat to South, not seen). Simple timber boarded dado to stairwells. 1st floor flat to North appears to be the most intact: timber boarded dado to hallway and rear room. 4-panel timber doors. Oriel windowed room has decorative cornice, tiled chimneypiece. Part-glazed cupboard with Art Nouveau brass finger plate. Original glazing.

MATERIALS

Harled with sandstone ashlar predominantly to dressings, quoins, and shopfronts of principal elevation. Timber bargeboards to principal elevation and stairtowers mostly have zigzag motif. Some non-traditional replacement glazing. Original windows where they remain are timber sash and case with horns, mostly 12-pane over 2-pane and 9-pane over plate glass.

ANCILLARY STRUCTURE AND BOUNDARY WALLS

Abutting the monopitch extension to the West elevation is the projecting wing of the corrugated iron washhouse. It has a slate roof and simple timber boarded doors. To the North, West and South there is a coped rubble stone wall.
