History

One of two pairs of late C19 reflected villas designed with considerable ingenuity and flair. The manner in which the design has utilised the steep slope of the hill, and has quoted details from the castle and town walls is quietly impressive and shows an ambition and understanding beyond the usual vocabulary of Victorian villa architecture. Details such as the battered plinth, careful corbelling and the contrast between rough-dressed limestone walling and sandstone quoining are features directly copied from medieval practice and give a consciously medievalising theme; this is reinforced by the medieval walls and corner tower immediately to the rear of the group which no doubt helped to inspire such aspects.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for its special interest as one of of 4 late C19 houses conceived as two reflected pairs, showing considerable subtlety and sophistication in their design and grouping, as well as in the way in which they relate to their context.

Group value with other listed items in Bull Lane and with the Town Walls to the rear.
