1901, by W H Bidlake for Ralph Heaton. An irregular composition essentially
L-shaped in plan with a brick tower-like erection at the angle and a stable
yard ranging behind the small arm of the L. In a Tudor style much influenced
by the Arts and Crafts Movement. Partly of 2, partly of 3 and partly of 4
storeys. Ground floor of red brick in English bond; first floor roughcast,
minimum stone dressings; slate roof. All windows have leaded lights and wood
mullions and some have transoms as well. Good metalwork in door hinges, window
latches and rainwater heads. Entrance (north-west) front is distinguished
by a pair of tall brick chimneys linked together at the top, a projecting
gabled bay in which there is a single window high up a capacious wooden porch
and a row of small windows tucked under the cill eaves. Garden (south-east) front,
with terrace in front, is distinguished by an advanced gabled bay on the left,
a broad central brick chimney stack and 2 unequal gabled bays in the right-hand
one of which there is a polygonal bowed window rising through ground and first
floors. Stable yard is also of brick and roughcast and entered through an
arch over which the slate roof flows. Across the yard are the stables themselves
with a pyramidal slate roof. With weathervane sitting astride the centre
of an ordinary longer gabled roof.
