Designed by John Dick Peddie for his brother, Donald Smith Peddie, CA. Previously thought to have been John Dick Peddie's own house. Post Office Directory for 1860 lists Donald Smith Peddie as living at North Trinity House. The title deeds for the house also show Donald Smith Peddie as the owner until 1881, when Peddie's goods were sequestered and his assets sold. The house was bought back by John Dick Peddie in 1883 and sold on. (Information courtesy of the owner, Dr WS Robertson).
