This middle-class home shows how influential the regionalist trend was both in towns and at the seaside. Timber framing, or a concrete imitation, came back into fashion shortly before 1900 and remained popular until the end of the 1930s, giving this type of villa the “Anglo-Norman” look. The internal layout is inspired by English habits, shown particularly by the separate hall.
