Commissioned by American owners, the house was built in a California design in the early 1920’s. In the 1930’s the second family to own the house, who were also American, became the owners of the Grimsby Brick and Tile Works. The house, designed by an eminent architect, appears to have other mysteries. Why was it built in Grimsby? Why the design? And what was the source of the American money?
