HISTORY: Scott added the N aisle to St Andrew's Church (q.v.) in 1860. This house is an impressive example of the work of one of the major Victorian architects, unusually conforming to a Jacobean Revival style but the influence of Gothic Revival clearly displayed in its assured handling and compositional mass.
