Historic Environment Record entry
A fine imposing detached villa in French Empire style, retaining its character and features of interest. Circa 1900. The land registry records that the site (which contained the burned down ruins of Mount Pleasant Farm), was purchased in May 1900 by Leon Beghin, who then built the current house, previously called Mont St Elidor.
Detached villa, two-storey plus mansard attic, irregular plan. Fish-scale slate mansard roof with red brick stacks. Oeil de boeuf window above entrance bay. Walls rendered with string course to upper floor. Intermittent full height canted bay windows with cornice detail, timber sash windows. Also French windows on first floor accessing balconettes. The entrance porch is a later addition, as is the extension to the west, which echoes the original detailing.
