Dr Hedley Brown’s Consulting Rooms/Residence was built in 1927. After the completion of the dwelling Dr Brown worked from there as a general practitioner. About 1942 he practised both at his Rode Road surgery and at Wickham Terrace in Brisbane. In the Real Estate Section of the Courier Mail dated 21 November 1959 the home was advertised to be auctioned on the grounds on 1 December, as ‘Well-Known Doctor’s Residence, corner Sandgate Road and Rode Road’. The portion of the property facing Sandgate Road was sold to Esso Standard Oil of Australia (c1964) and used as a petrol station for many years. Since then the site has been occupied by various businesses and a dental practice.
