Statement of Interest

Part of an A-Group with Holy Trinity Church and Parsonage and 3 Dundonald Road. This was one of the first houses built on Dundonald Road and is a good example of the prevailing Scottish Baronial style that was popular in the latter half of the nineteenth-century. Although the development of Dundonald Road dates from the 1860, the road itself is partly on the site of the older Bullet Street (named after a popular 18th century game) and also on part of the Duke of Portland's early railway line to Troon.
