Listing: Grade II
The entry in Pevsner's Sussex: East (with Nicholas Antram, 2013) reads:
HOLTYE COMMON. HIGHLANDS (formerly Wilverley), 1/4m W. A Late Victorian house and a 'cockney villa of the worst type' according to Voysey, who added the delightful but clashing E wing, 1906-7 for Dr J.F. Goodhart. It has all Voysey's trademarks: roughcast of course, horizontal bands of stone-mullioned windows and a big slate roof. The entrance front has a broad gable starting low down, a recessed porch with semicircular arch and a staircase window. The garden front has a recessed terrace or porch behind a round arch rising from the ground. Curiously there are red brick pilasters, not a material much favoured by Voysey, perhaps to effect a link to the brick of the earlier house. To the W COTTAGES and GARAGE COURT also by Voysey.
