Statement of Interest

Although slightly set back from the street, this house occupies a prominent position on Lugton Road, and is of value to the streetscape. It was built as the Free Church Manse in 1847, two years after the Free Church in Dunlop was built, and four years after the Disruption of 1843. It is therefore a relatively early example of a Free Church Manse. Its ecclesiastical status is marked by the hoodmoulds over the windows, which are very similar to those on the front of the former Free Church Building (listed separately). The hinged front door is a curious feature, and has been made that way because the entrance lobby is too narrow to allow a door the full width of the doorway to open completely.
