History

Brandon House which was formerly called Caerbadon House, 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.
