Designed by local architect Clifford Hickson an accomplished arts and crafts designer. With references to the work of Edwin Lutyens. The homes are modest in scale but has grandeur resulting from the classical detailing. Built at a time when architects and tradesmen understood the principles of the classical orders. Reflects the belief that modest means should not preclude residents from the appreciation of good design and quality construction.
