House. c.1935. Almost certainly by Clement Stretton. Whitewashed rendered brick with flat asphalt roofs and brick stacks. Moderne marine-style mainly with Crittall windows and with stepped blocks to take advantage of site and view. 2 storeys, part with attic solarium.
Main front is has curving staircase projection to centre with long curving horizontal window at the top and small windows below. Entrance to left with small window above and further to left a 4-light window with balconied French window above and 3 windows in attic, formerly open solarium, now glazed. Glazed door leads from the solarium onto the roof. Front to right of staircase has a small window above and French window below. Further casement and French window on right end. French window and casements on left end, that to lower right forming a corner window with the front. Single storey wing. Casements to rear. INTERIOR. Curving staircase with solid balustrade and wooden top rail. Original doors and handles and also skirting boards here and elsewhere in the house. Original painted wooden fireplaces in main rooms.
Clement Stretton was, at the time he is likely to have designed this house, the Head of Architecture at the Leicester College of Art and Technology. He imaginatively used the sloping site and created a finely detailed house of the period, which it remains.
Forms a group with the entrance gates and piers (qv).
