For the first several years of the twentieth century, the housing on this side of the road stopped at the Montrave Hall (see 1912 map at foot of post). However, from the 1910s, development continued westwards.
The top postcard image shows, from right to left, the houses which were originally named: Tighmuire (later Ardoch), Carnbann, Roma, Lindores (later Briarbrae then Rowallan), Standing Stanes, Belston and Duddingston House. The first pair of semi-detached houses on the right were built before 1915. Standing Stanes joined them in the early part of the 1920s (built for the Sidey familiy). Belston and Duddingston House followed later in the 1920s. Duddingston House was built for Edinburgh born William Moscrip (who was Managing Director of National Steel Foundry Leven Works and Chairman of East Fife Football Club). In the early 1930s another house, originally named 'Hollam' was added.
The recent image above features what are now numbers 60 to 70 Leven Road. The notable change is the additional house - of a modern, flat-fronted style - which has filled the gap betwen Rowallan and Standing Stanes. This looks to be circa 1960s. I wonder why this plot was not built upon for several decades. Was the feu bought but never developed? Did World War One play a role in the initial delay in building? If you know, please comment. This gap site is highlighted below in more detail.
After 1935, there was a pause in development for a few decades. Eventually, further houses were erected along Leven Road westwards on this side, until all the space was filled up to Pilmuir Road.
