Using stone cut and dressed at the nearby, now disused, quarry, he created an impressive detached rural home with many attractive and unique features. The remains of his old quarry are still in evidence nearby and form part of a delightful tree lined rural walk along the Chalk Beck which runs a short distance downhill from the house
