Good example of the International Style, typical of the period but not found extensively in Scotland. Bearsden expanded significantly in the 1930s when bungalows and modest 2-storey houses were the norm. Some flat-roofed Modern houses did appear in the area, a number of which are listed. The most distinguished of these are found in Carse View Drive, Kilmardinny Avenue and Kilmardinny Crescent by J R H MacDonald (see separate listings). 44 Pendicle Road was built by the architect for himself. Atchison is also known to have built a more traditional pitched roof house at 42 Pendicle Road for his mother.
