Statement of Interest

This merchant's house was part of the 2nd phase of development on Dundonald Road, which had started in the 1860s. By the end of the 1870s the W side of the street was almost fully developed and thus the E side had begun to be exploited. Although the development of Dundonald Road dates from the 1860s and 1870s, 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.
