Site Management (8 December 2008)

3-storey, 3-bay house with later adjoining 2-bay house now forming single property. Lined render to front, sandstone rubble to side, full length 19th century additions to rear. Plain margins. Timber sash and case windows, plate glass, boarded at ground to front. Brick gablehead stack to SE, mutual stack. The 2-bay section to the left was probably added later in the 19th Century.

This is a good example of a relatively little altered early 19th century residential property which retains its urban setting. It is situated close to the entrance of Montrose and is particularly of interest as it retains its boundary wall and gatepiers to the street. It is shown on the 1822 John Wood Map of Montrose as being the property of James Burness.
