Statement of Interest

It has not been possible to view this property in the course of the resurvey and the information provided has been gleaned from secondary sources only. The villa is set in large wooded grounds and is not visible from the road. It is a good example of the picturesque form with applied classical details. On stylistic grounds, Davis (above) suggests the architect may be David Hamilton himself and compares Hamilfield with nearby Maulside (architect unknown).
