Statement of Interest

This is a fine example of a well-detailed Arts and Crafts villa with distinctive Art Deco elements such as sweeping bowed balcony and bays, by a prestigious Dundee architect's firm, sited on the outskirts of Blairgowrie at Rosemount. The villa has a number of distinctive features including the prominent central gable, round-ended bays to the garden elevation, the tall chimney stacks and the large balcony overlooking the garden. There is some high-quality wood work to the interior, emphasising the use of natural materials. Professor David Walker suggests that the panelling may be the work of the cabinet maker, Thomas Justice of Whitehall Street, Dundee. The 2007 additions to the property have used the same Arts and Crafts style and matching materials.

Drawings in the RCAHMS, dated 1937 and signed by the architect firm of Thoms and Wilkie depict the house as it appears now, with the exception of the 2007 extensions. The drawings note that the house was built for a W Campbell Scarlett. W Campbell Scarlet is mentioned as a solicitor in a Roll of the Members of the Guildry of Dundee.

Thoms and Wilkie was a prestigious Dundee architectural practice, whose work centred around Dundee and Angus. Set up by Patrick Hill Thoms and William Fleming Willkie in 1901, by 1937, Patrick's nephew Thomas was a partner in the firm and Wilkie had retired. The firm continued until 1975. The firm's work was wide ranging and included a number of private villas.

Rosemount, an area to the south of Blairgowrie, developed at the beginning of the 20th century and it contains a number of substantial villas.
