Appraisal

This Edwardian style house of modest proportions is a notable example of early twentieth-century architecture. The varying window treatments articulate the separate storeys, whilst the recessed door opening adds decorative interest. The house is illustrative of the expansion of the suburbs of Doon in the early twentieth century.
