Part of a small estate established new in the early C19 in the romantic style of that period. Not a working unit, the estate was intended solely for recreational use and was probably intended as a summer residence of a town dweller, In the grounds of the villa are a lodge on the entrance driveway (q.v.), a gateway (q.v.), and a further lodge to the north (q.v.), which form an interesting and complete ensemble.
