The Leighton Estate is an exceptional example of high-Victorian estate development. It is remarkable for the scale and ambition of its conception and planning, the consistency of its design, the extent of its survival, and is the most complete example of its type in Wales. Hillcrest is an important element of this whole ensemble at Leighton. As a small labourer's cottage it is characteristic of the Leighton Estate, and its plainness in comparison with the lodges and dwellings at Leighton Farm represents the hierarchy of estate buildings. Hillcrest and Beechview also form a strong visual group with the Slurry Tank.
