Construction of number 9 and number 11 (now RUK residences) began in 1804. The plans were made but inaccurate measurements were taken, so when the houses were completed there was a gap in between them. The constructors decided to build a third house in the space, which was occupied by an army officer and his wife. When he died, his widow had the house painted black. The value of this house has increased significantly over the years, and it commanded a ridiculous Th. 800,000 price when sold in 1997.
