Description

Early 19th century, 2-storey traditional 21-bay terrace, composed of

7 3-bay houses. Narrower plan at No 4 giving recess to rear elevation suggesting of later erection linking 2 earlier blocks. Stugged ashlar street elevation with droved ashlar dressings, coursed rubble rear and side elevations with droved dressings. All elevations painted. Regular fenestration. Projecting window cills. Nos 1, 2, 5, and 6, entrance doors in bay 3 of elevation; Nos 3 and 7, in bay 1 of elevation. Central entrance doors to elevations of Nos 4 and 5. Greek Doric doorpiece to No 5, partially fluted columns with plain capitals,

block pediment over. Small bracketted timber canopies over doorways to Nos 2, 3 and 7.

12-pane timber sash and case windows at front and rear of Nos 1-3 and at rear elevations of Nos 4-6. Plate glass timber sash and case windows at N elevation of Nos 4-6. Modern glazing at No 7. Piend-roofed, slate-hung dormers, tripartite at No 1, bipartite at No 2, canted at No 5, single elsewhere, mostly 4-pane timber sash and case except 12-pane timber sash and case to front and rear of No 2.

Grey slate roof with lead covered skews to W of Nos 2 and 5, skew copes at end gables. Multiple-flue stacks remaining except for that between Nos 6 and 7.

Statement of Special Interest

This is the remaining half of Shore Street, the E range having been demolished in 1909, when the new post office was built. Door surround at No 5 has been removed from No 4, originally forming centrepiece of terrace. The windows at Nos 1-3 (Kelvin Hotel) appear to have their original glass. As the chimney stacks survive, this makes these houses the most intact survivors of the early 19th century planned town. Dean of Guild Court plans record alterations for John Wilson, Crown Hotel

(presumably the now the Kelvin Hotel) by James Begg 1896.

About Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Other than the name or address of a listed building, further details are provided for information purposes only. Historic Environment Scotland does not accept any liability for any loss or damage suffered as a consequence of inaccuracies in the information provided. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the 1997 Act. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
