1-7 Frithside Street
Early 19th possibly later 18th century block running down the original route of the Frithside Burn and towards the harbour. The building comprises shops at the lower level with living accommodation above. The building having beautiful corner detailing wrapping around on to shire street.
The communal repairs to these properties included roof repairs, so re-slating elements and repairing and renewing lead flashing where required. They also carried out chimney head repairs and overhaul of the rainwater goods (gutters). The property was harled (rendered) in cement which was trapping water in the building and damaging the stonework. So the whole building has been re-harled in lime render, which will help the building dry out and protect the stonework. Most of the windows have been replaced with timber sash and case and Financial Options has had its traditional shopfront refurbished and traditional hand painted signage installed.
