1 and 2 Templelands, Dunbar

Templelands is a Georgian house in Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland. According to the listed building report for the property, it dates to circa 1820,[1] but there are references that date it back to the late 18th century, and attribute it to the architect James Craig (1739–1795),[citation needed] more famous for his work on Edinburgh New Town. The late ceramist Margery Clinton lived at Templelands between 1995 and 2005. Today the house is a private home, partly operated as holiday accommodation.[2]

Templelands comprises a terrace of two symmetrical, two-storey-and-basement houses. Each house has three bays. The building has an ashlar front, rubble basement and rear, and rusticated quoins, and other decorative features. The central doorways have Ionic surrounds, panelled doors, and plate glass fanlights. The building was listed at Category B in 1971.[1]
