House, now flats. 1900-01. By Francis Bedford and Sidney
Kitson. For Edward Audus Hirst. Gritstone (snecked) to ground
floor, tile-hung jettied upper floor with timber-framed
cross-wing and brick chimneys; steeply-pitched tile roof. In
Vernacular Revival style.
2 storeys with attic, 3 bays. Central timber porch under deep
jetty with spandrels carved with foliage and initials: 'EAH'
and 'EMN'; mullioned windows of 3 and 5 lights. First-floor
windows all gabled: a 6-light oriel window in the
timber-framed left bay, 4-light casements centre and right,
leaded panes. Deep eaves, tall brick stack forward of ridge
between bays 2 and 3 and at gable left.
INTERIOR: the front principal rooms retain original fine
details and craftsmanship including: entrance hall with
half-glazed door and screen to former stair hall with leaded
lights, fireplace with wooden surround framing 3 beaten copper
panels with Art Nouveau bosses and scrolls, deep frieze of
Tudor roses and leaves; front left: inglenook-style fireplace
in panelled recess with Classical surround, flanking fire
windows with leaded lights, benches and moulded architrave,
ceiling friezes of oak leaves, naturalistic flowers and
foliage; front right: fine inlaid panelling, fire surround,
fitted cupboards with leaded glass fronts, copper Art Nouveau
light switch and service bell plaques. The staircase removed
when the house divided into 6 flats.
'A good example of how the achievement of Norman Shaw and his
generation was diffused throughout the country, raising the
general standard of domestic architecture...' (Stamp and
Goulancourt, p.216). The architects were referred to in
Muthesius' 'Das Englische Haus' (1904) as 'a firm of very
promising young architects'.
(Kelly's Directory of Leeds: 1905-; Stamp, G & Goulancourt, A:
The English House 1860-1914: 1986-: 216).
