"Although completed in the same prolific year that produced the Royal Society of Agriculture Farm, Izbit al-Basri prototype house and al-Razik Villa, the house for Husayn Bey Farid surprisingly lacks virtuosity displayed elsewhere. Flat roofs are used instead of domes and vaults, and pointed arcades replace regular arches." (construction not verified)
