In the late 19th century, there was a building boom in Bath to rival the activity in the Regency period. At the time, the city council was involved in improving civic amenities so private investment in speculative building financed extensive suburban housing developments. Desirable detached and semi detached residences on the outskirts of the city centre were widely advertised in the 1880's and 1890's (taken from The History of Bath by Graham Davis & Penny Bonsall). The houses on what is now Lower Oldfield Park are listed in Bath directories from 1882 - the address at the time was just "Oldfield Park" and covered what is now both Upper and Lower Oldfield Park. This property was, at the time, called Starcross Villa. Neighbouring homes were called Drakeloe, Dawlish Villas, Carisbrook Villas and Queen Villas.
