HISTORICAL NOTE: built as part of the development of this area
undertaken for Joseph Pitt in 1825-42, the general layout by
the architect John Forbes. SY Griffith's 'History of
Cheltenham and its Vicinity' (1838) records that the house was
'designed by Paul & Sons' and 'built by (Henry) Haines & Son'.
A fine example of a Tudor Gothic villa, its setting
benefitting from the complete boundary walls (qv) in matching
style. Malden Court occupies a corner site at the junction of
Pittville Lawn and Central Cross Drive.
All the villas on Pittville Lawn form a distinguished
