Talking of houses built on the corner of larger plots, I can’t help but mention Curraghvoe (Upper Gordon Road) , a dental practice in Upper Park Road and a house called ‘Jack’s Park, also in Upper Gordon Road. Curraghvoe (named after a town in Ireland) was designed by the Poulters for a career Army officer who died in WW1. At some point in the 1960s part of the garden was sold to a local family and that was named after the small dog who lived at the large house – to him the garden had been a ‘park’! When the dental surgery came to be built on the other side must have been about the same time? I may be mistaken about that land having been part of Curraghvoe’s garden – does anyone know for sure?
