Notes: Cost: 3,000 to 4,000.

It is possible that Wilson did two houses in Hermitage Drive, and that 'Inglewood' and number 18 are not the same - the correlation between the sources is unclear as no precise dates are given in either.

DMW indicates that the house was designed for Wilson himself - from the 1907 EAA catalogue. However PO directories suggest it was actually for Mrs Patrick Thomson.
