He is recorded living at "Staumoor" 45 Tierney Road and he was responsible for the design of "Dixcot" in Streatham for Sir Richard Walter Essex MP
Voysey was educated at home until the family moved to London in 1871, when he was sent, for two years, to Dulwich College. His academic work was undistinguished and, believing himself to be the dunce of the family, he later claimed to have become an architect because it was the only profession for which one did not need to pass any examinations.
Early published drawings describe a stylistic debt to the picturesque, half-timbered buildings of R. Norman Shaw and Devey In his rejection of the elaborate quasi-Elizabethan style affected by Devey, Shaw, and Sir Ernest George, Voysey may certainly be described as the originator of a new movement; moreover, he was the mentor of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, W. M. Dudok, and J. J. P. Oud, usually acclaimed as pioneers.
He was elected a fellow of RIBA in 1929 and was awarded the royal gold medal for architecture in 1940
