Notes: Following the rejection of Thomson's design for a double villa on this site due to the high estimated cost, the clients built a large and plain pair of semi-detached houses in the Gothic style with steeply pitched roofs and gables, but as certain details are reminiscent of Thomson's earlier Gothic houses, the design may well have been by him, or by Turnbull, adapting earlier Thomson designs; internal Thomsonesque details confirm this.
