Georgian House is a B listed Georgian Villa which was built in 1810. It was once owned by the respected artist George Mathieson who was well known for his etchings, one in particular The Stirling Girl. It depicts the head of a girl wearing a helmet with a feather. Hidden within the helmet are some of Stirling's most famous landmarks, such as Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and Robert the Bruce.

George Mathieson's son was the world famous composer Muir Mathieson. He conducted the London Symphony Orchestra, and was musical director of over 1000 films such as Alfred Hitchcocks's Vertigo, Sir Lawrence Oliviers's Henry V, Hamlet, Brief Encounter and David Lean's Oliver Twist.
