Built in the early 19th century, Freshfield House was situated on ground between the modern Freshfield Road, which was named after the house, and Ampthill Road in Freemantle. In the 1920s the Freshfield housing estate was built on the grounds of the house, along what became Freshfield Road and Victory Road, both off the east side of Waterhouse Lane. The house was not demolished at this time but it suffered extensive bomb damage during World War Two. It was demolished after the war and the site of the house is now a recreation ground.
