Notes NOTES: A small house was first designed for John George Fuller on land he purchased in 1819 at the top of Brixton Hill but even as it was under construction a larger one was designed communicating with the first which then became offices for the newer house. J. B. Papworth provided designs for the estate up until his death. The house was demolished in 1908.
