Statement of Interest

25 St Mary's Street is a fine example of an early 19th century simple Classical house. More commonly found in central St Andrews, this restrained style with careful proportions is important to the character of the town. 25 St Mary's Street is a good example of this type and is largely unaltered externally, retaining a 12-pane glazing pattern in timber sash and case windows.

The initial development of St Mary's Street began from 1812 and continued to the 1920s (Smart & Kenneth). John Wood's 1820 map of St Andrews shows that development at this time concentrated on the east side of the street including the site occupied by No 25, although the level of detail is not sufficient to accurately identify the buildings individually.
