Matthew Steele, dated 1909. Distinctive, tailored 2-storey, 6-bay, L-plan canted flatted block on prominent corner site. Dry-dash with bull-faced and ashlar dressings. Eaves cornice and blocking course forming parapet with regularly articulated small square 5-part openings. Moulded doorways; stone mullions. Recessed entrances with deck access timber-braced balconies to upper floors.

W (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: symmetrical. 2 angled bays to centre each with advanced square-plan tripartite window to each floor, those to 1st floor flanking relief carved stone with 'SEAFORTH 1909'. Flanking recessed entrance bays each with centre door between small bipartite windows (those to right, Linlithgow Road, now single light). Simple square piers with chunky railings to ground floor entrances, and railed steps with squat buttressed piers leading to 1st floor. Advanced outer bays with bipartite window to each floor (those to right altered to single windows).

Mixture of modern and original glazing. Original timber sash and case windows, margined top sash with central plain stained glass panel over 2-pane. Single original door to upper left, timber with small tripartite glazed openings to upper half. Grey slates with red ridge tiles. Central near-ridge stacks, pair of stacks to N and S elevations.

INTERIOR: not seen (2004).

BOUNDARY WALLS: to N and W, sandstone rubble wall with flat coping.

Statement of Interest

A prominently sited corner block that is distinctly Steele in style but evidently inspired by continental models in public housing. It is well-detailed and cleverly designed to use the corner site to maximum impact. Idiosyncratic touches lift it above the commonplace and make it one of notable local architect Steele's more successful smaller housing compositions.
