Adapted for use by Ayrshire & Arran Health Board. An interesting house which, despite change of use and the addition of a single storey clinic to the N in 1923 (No 4 Burnside Place), still retains some good features. These include a prominent bow, overhanging timber bracketed eaves, long and short surrounds to openings and a red tile bell-cast roof.
