Full Description

Gifford describes this building as "a big late Victorian villa, its unadventurous domesticity badly jolted by a very martial tower." <1>

Photographs of the building's exterior and grounds were submitted as a requirement of planning permission for extensions and alterations. The walled garden is now disused and overgrown but the greenhouses are still standing. <2>
