Very little is known about this project. According to Robert Mallet (January 1994), however, Le Clos du Dan is a farmhouse opposite the main entrance to Le Bois des Moutiers. In 1905 Guillaume proposed to alter and enlarge it as a residence for his daughter Pascaline and asked Lutyens to propose a scheme. Nothing came of it and later Lutyens persuaded him to build a completely new house – Les Communes. (Richardson, 1994, p.56)
