Statement of Interest

Designed by Burnet Napier Henderson Orphoot, or 'Phootie', for himself. Dean of Guild elevations of the house show an open loggia to the S, similar to that at No 2 Easter Belmont Road. Easter Belmont Road is a group of large, idiosyncratic villas designed by high profile architects during the 1920s and 1930s including F Deas, B Orphoot, H Tarbolton, M Ochterlony, B Spence and W Kininmonth. The villas are representative of the international styles that influenced British architecture during the inter-war period.
