A former care home could be converted into new housing if newly submitted plans are approved.
Edenholme Care Home in Stonehaven could see five flats created and 10 dwelling houses erected at the site of the property.
Inverbervie-based FPD Ltd has submitted the application for the care home.
A FPD Ltd statement said: “Edenholme is a good example of a well-detailed turn of the 20th Century suburban villa and is prominently sited on one of the main thoroughfares into Stonehaven.
“It is distinctive detailing which sets it apart from the more commonplace at this date such as towering stacks, sweeping eaves and over-size over-door pediment, together with some distinguishing interior details.
“It is listed as Category C and is set back within its own grounds which are also fairly substantial.
“Edenholme was most recently used as a care home with several late additions added to the building.”
