HISTORICAL NOTE: the Bayshill estate was developed by a joint
stock company which purchased land from the Skillicorne family
in 1837. By 843 Henry Davies, in his Guide to Cheltenham,
described `a number of detached villas .. several of which are
occupied by resident families of affluence and station, and
others are in an unfinished state.' By c1845 the company was
bankrupt and Onley bought much Bayshill Road property. Little
described this as one of a `superb group (of villas) that make
Bayshill Road one of the great roads for architecture in all
An ambitious Classical villa design, retained on the list for
its importance in the Bayshill Road group of villas.
