This large, L-shaped, roughcast detached house with curved gabled dormers derived from 17th-century Scottish vernacular architecture, is located in the affluent Renfrewshire commuter village of Bridge of Weir. It was built for Alfred Allison Todd, partner in Dunn & Todd, a Glasgow firm of chartered accountants.

Authorship: Drawings showing a slightly different treatment of the house were in Mackintosh's possession at the time of his death, and suggest that he contributed to an early stage of the design process. The plan, materials and historical references have parallels with Windyhill and The Hill House, but the house was built according to drawings signed by John Keppie, and it seems likely that Keppie had overall control of the design.
