8, The Joyce House, incorporates architectural concepts of Frank Lloyd Wright. This house was built in 1962 for Peter & Pamela Joyce, to the design of architects Towell, Jansen and Rippon. It includes walls of windows, vaulted ceilings and a cantilevered fireplace. It was built within the walls and gardens of Edensor and overlooks the Cheltenham Recreation Club [1]. Its design is importantly built on this location and outlook.

Towell, Jansen and Rippon were architects in the influential 1961 display homes of notable architects like Woolley, Seidler and Guzman [2].

The home was sold in 1917 by the son, Mark Joyce [3].
