The original Gannochy Housing Estate was built by A K Bell between 1923 and 1931. The estate’s sandstone ‘family’ bungalows were at the cutting edge of urban layout and design at the time, influenced by the ‘Garden Cities’ movement, with good quality housing and plenty of open space.

Gannochy Housing Estate
146 sandstone bungalows and three houses. The bungalows are south-west facing to maximise light during the day. They come in two or three bedroom variants complete with large garden and garden shed.
Six small terraced houses for single people which provide compact accommodation with a patio area and a communal, serviced garden.
63 pensioners houses in three separate areas of the estate – Gannochy Avenue, Gannochy Walk, and Kinmond Court.
Our most recent expansion, which will open in June 2020, adds a further 48 homes that build upon A K’s original vision by improving health, accessibility and connectiveness for tenants. They consist of:
- 8 two-bedroom houses with open plan living / kitchen / dining space (detached and semi-detached);
- Six one-bedroom houses with open plan living / kitchen / dining space (terraced);
- 4 three-bedroom two storey houses with a fully accessible ground floor to accommodate disabled family members (detached).
Many of our houses are adapted for individuals and families with a range of disabilities or mobility restrictions. All 48 properties in our new estate on Gannochy Road have been designed to maximise access, including open plan living areas with wide doorways to aid ease of movement, built in provision for bathroom conversion to wet rooms and clear views through the houses to increase the sense of orientation and natural daylight.
