51-55 Broad Street
This corner property dates to the 19th century and holds a prominent position on the approach to Fraserburgh Town Centre from the south. It consists of living accommodation above traditional shops, the corner plot giving an attractive curved frontage. This property retained many of its original shopfront features, including beautifully carved ‘console’s’ which have been retained as part of the scheme.
There were comprehensive works to conserve the exterior of this building including extensive repairs to the roof and chimney heads. The shopfronts have been a combination of repair of original elements and replacement of non-traditional materials and detailing. During the project images were found of the property in the early 20th century which clearly show the building harled (rendered) and so this has been reinstated to protect the building from the elements. The project also discovered windows to the basement on the Frithside Street elevation, which had previously been blocked up.
