History

Historical notes: The subject property forms part of land purchased at auction by Alexander Brodie Spark in 1840. The house appears to have been built in the early 1920s, as the Sands Directory did not list any houses on the south side of Brennan’s Road before 1920. By 1929 the house was occupied by Frank Davies and the house’s name was Deeside.
