B-Group with Ashburnham Lodge. A fine example of the Arts and Crafts style and the only example of the genre in Queensferry. Fortunately the surrounding estate has picked up the white and red colouring thus complementing the villa. The house was split into 4 properties during the later 20th century. As part of the renovation the coach house (No 7) was detached from the main house.
