The Gazebo is at the bottom of the garden of Point Hill House and so has
a frontage to the Military Road. Red brick, tiled roof surmounted by a
stone ball finial. 1 sash window with original glazing bars. Board walk
with stone balustrade leads down from the hillside. To the south are ornamental
pools and a fountain - the whole built up above the road surface and surrounded
by a red brick wall and so hidden from the road. This garden appears to
have been laid out in 1912, (article in Country Life November 29, 1913).
