Located in the oval formed by Princes Crescent. When the road was first developed in the 1920s it was kept as an open space and for a time was used as a putting green. In the late 1930s it was acquired by Ian Millar, a businessman, who employed Robert Cromie to custom build him house. Completed in 1937 it was made from specially made bricks imported from Italy. Millar only lived here for nine years selling out to Hove Hospital in 1946 who converted it into a nurses living accommodation. Further change occurred in 1963 when it became a nurses training school which it remained until 1989 when the local health authority tried and failed to sell it. Eventually it was acquired in 1993 by the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution who converted it into a care home which opened in 1996 and is now known as Barford Court.
