History

Lorraine House and Haisbro House, Nos. 26 and 28 Cleveland Walk, is one of a group of four detached villas that were constructed in the mid-C19, and were the first houses to be built on Cleveland Walk. They were possibly built to a design by the architect Henry Goodridge for the Factors of the Bathwick Estate.

The building was sub-divided into two separate dwellings in the C20.

Reasons for Listing

* Architectural interest: although divided into two houses, this is a good example of a restrained Italianate villa of the mid-C19 displaying good quality architectural detailing;
* Group value: it forms an interesting group with other mid-Victorian villas along Cleveland Walk that are listed, showing the later character of this notable suburban development
