Description
Heathcote is a Neoclassical style villa in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, England. Designed by architect Edwin Lutyens, it was his first comprehensive use of that style.... In its [Grade I listing] listing for Heathcote, English Heritage called it a "pivotal" building in Lutyens's career, and "an imaginative and inventive essay in Mannerism”. … In 1906, Lutyens was commissioned by John Thomas Hemingway (1857–1926), a wealthy self-made Bradford wool merchant, and his wife Emma Jane, to replace their existing villa.... It was completed in 1908. ... The gardens were laid out by Lutyens, with pools and parterres, and retaining walls for the terracing, including that of the central lawn. ... The planting of the gardens was by garden designer Gertrude Jekyll. -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heathcote,_Ilkley
