SY 08 SW 6/152 6.11.72.
1897. E S Prior architect. One of the seminal buildings of the Arts and Crafts
movement both in its plan and for its use of varied local vernacular materials.
Coursed stone interspersed with random sections of cobbles of different sizes
giving a richly textured appearance. Former thatched roof replaced by hipped
slates after an early fire. The plan consists of 2 rectangular blocks set diagonally
to each other. The entrance, in the angle, rises to a large wide slate hung
gable jettied out in 2 stages, 3 storeys with symmetrically placed windows.
Centre round arched door with lead panel and small Venetian window above.
The outer blocks of 2 storeys with irregular fenestration. All windows have
mullions (and, in some cases transoms) and leaded lights. The outer blocks
of the garden elevation terminate in gables on their inner ends. These are
linked by centre gable. Below are 1st floor windows with mullions and transom.
On the ground floor is a verandah roof supported on granite columns. From
each outer block rises a massive round stone chimney, each with stone cap supported
by large carved balls. Interior features said to include galleried hall and
fireplace with oak mantel. References:A Service. Edwardian Architecture and
its Origins pages 143-145. Sir Bannister Fletcher. A History of Architecture
