House. 1877, by Edward Swinfen Harris, for F J Taylor, mineral water and mustard
manufacturer. Domestic Revival style. Red brick, English bond, with some limestone dressings
and some timberframed upper floors with brick noggings and gables with plaster infill
impressed with sunflower designs. Tiled roofs. Two storeys and attics. Entrance on north to
reception/stair hall, with reception rooms on south and service wing on left beyond service
stair in tower. Front elevation has brick and stone gothic porch with stone strings and hood,
and inner order on carved stone capitals. Recessed glazed timber door. First floor has
timberframed bay, and simple sash windows under near-flush pointed brick arches in manner of
Butterfield. Gabled dormers. Stair tower rises from multiple chamfered brick offset courses, and
is octagonal with decorative brick panels, returning to circular before multiple outsetting
courses below eaves. Conical slate tower with decorative ironwork. Rear elevation has stone
mullioned and dressed windows, and two gables, one framed, the other tile hung. Interior has
staircase with carved newels and turned balusters and similar turned baluster gallery overlooking
hall from first floor. Some original fireplaces. Various window box-seats. Panelled doors.
Gilded timber cornice in dining room and panelled ceiling on carved wall posts and corbels.
Fine stained and painted glass, especially in dining room, where four panels representing the
Seasons are possibly by N Westlake, a close associate of the architect. This house, for an
eminent local man, is the 'chef d'oeuvre' of this significant Aesthetic Movement architect, based
in Stony Stratford and London, who was a long-standing friend of E W Godwin, and known to
Butterfield, Street and others.
