1914 [1913, see comments below], the Ex-Commodore's House, formerly named “Iddesleigh,” was owned by the Hongkong Land Investment and Agency Company Limited as the residence for Company's Secretary. After the Second World War, it was occupied by the Royal Navy, who then allocated the building to the Commodore-in-Charge in 1952. The building has since then been known as Commodore's House (now known as Ex-Commodore's House). In 1979, it was handed over to the Hong Kong Government, and it has been occupied by Mother's Choice as a baby care centre since 1990.
