The Homewood. 20th-century Modernist house and garden designed by Patrick Gwynne and maintained on the National Trust's behalf by a tenant. Completed immediately pre-war and Gwynne lived there and ran his practice from there. He remained there while it was renovated by John Allan having given it to the National Trust.  In the 1920s his parents had lived here but because of traffic noise he built this house to the rear of the site where it was quieter.  A ‘two storey bungalow’ with the living accommodation all on one floor.
