30 Old Kirk Road, Costorphine

30 Old Kirk Road

Hidden away on a long road and away from the Main Street of Costorphine this little gem isn’t hard to find but you won’t happen upon it. This is a residential home on a residential street. It was designed by the architect Sir James Miller and built in 1931.

The building was category B listed in the 90’s. The notes of the categorisation record that the building is two storey with 5 bays and and irregular plan. It is flat roofed and has whitewashed rendered brick.

For me the staircase window is the most magnificent part of the building. This is a narrow triangular window that raises up from ground level to first floor.

The windows are painted steel.

A lovely example of Art Deco architecture.
