The de­sign of this neo-clas­si­cal house, com­pleted in 2007, is in­formed by the 18th-cen­tury Bri­tish tra­di­tion of villa ar­chi­tec­ture and its plan is based on the Villa Rag­ona, an un­re­alised project by the 16th-cen­tury ar­chi­tect An­drea Pal­la­dio. Its ex­act­ing brick­work cre­ates an at­trac­tive con­trast in colour with the stone of the por­tico and the frame of the cen­tral ped­i­ment. The house has an area of 7,500sq ft and in­cor­po­rates six bed­rooms. Its builder was R. J. Smith & Co
