By the summer of 1893, adverts were appearing in papers such as the Glasgow Herald about the 'beautiful sites for villas' on the Lundin Estate. However, as the feuing plan filled up with the names of those wishing to secure a plot, for either residential of commercial uses, many of those were familiar local names, such as Bremner, Douglas, Myles, Elder, Horne, Whyte and Patrick. The very first feu to reach completion was for local joiner and builder Andrew Masterton. The 8 December 1894 St Andrews Citizen reported this as "a handsome villa, built for Mr Masterton, Largo, at Lundin Links, is approaching completion. This is the first house erected on the new feus."
The house in question was 'Westhall' on Station Road (now Links Road). See image below of Westhall standing alone on Station Road (slightly left of centre) with stone walls enclosing its gardens and the houses of Victoria Road and Crescent Road behind it.
