By 1843 Henry Davies, in his Guide to Cheltenham, described, `a number of detached villas .. several of which are occupied by resident families of affluence and station, and others are in an unfinished state'. Little considers this part of, `a superb group (of villas) that make Bayshill Road one of the great roads for architecture in all England'. A Classical villa which with its low hipped roof and bracketed eaves exhibits some of the Italianate style characteristic of many mid C19 villas.
