The land on which Freehold Gate stands was formerly the private home of Henry Pope, a wealthy land owner, prior to the area being re-developed, with the Freehold Terrace name derived from the first group of freehold properties to be sold in the area many years ago. Situated on the junction of Freehold Terrace and Popes Foley, which was named after Henry Pope himself, Freehold Gate will be the first new apartment development to offer a share of the freehold thus the development name Freehold Gate.

A local historian mentioned that there were rumours that Henry Pope actually buried his prize stallion in the garden of the former house along with a chest of gold coins but speaking from his luxury yacht in the Bahamas, a former site watchman confirmed that no such treasures were found on site during his watch!
