These were two buildings on KIL 525. One ran parallel to Chatham Road, and one was parallel to Mody Road. They both had the same layout, and each appears to have been a mini terrace of three houses.

The dates are a guess - the earliest mention I've found on Gwulo is the 1897 Jurors List:

c Heymann Max Clerk Harling, Buschmann and Menzell   3 Lyeemoon Villas Kowloon
c Hille Otto Ferdinand Clerk Meyer & Co.   3 Lyeemoon Villas Kowloon
c Karberg Christian Petersen Clerk Arnhold Karberg & Co.   Lyeemoon Villas   Kowloon
c Price Herbert Wine Merchant Gande Price & Co.   5 Lyeemoon Villas Kowloon

The buildings are also shown on a map from the early 1900s (UKNA ref: MPG 1/798), but photos from the 1930s show other buildings on this site.
