Wallfield House
Wallfield House probably dated from the 18th century but, in a sale advert in 1826, it is referred to as the 'property of Wallfield, formerly called Lower Belvidere ... within 15 minutes walk of the Castle Street of Aberdeen'. It was situated in the Rosemount area, had 20 rooms with '2 acres of fine rich land surrounded by a high wall, covered with fruit trees of the finest kinds!' It was owned by Robert Catto, shipowner in the Australian and China trade, and a member of Aberdeen Harbour Board. After his death in 1885 and his widow in 1897, the house was demolished and the grounds laid out as two streets - Wallfield Place and Crescent.
