GV II

House. 1912-13, to the designs of Cyril Farey. Brick with hipped roof of pantiles and broad boxed eaves. Two storeys and five-window range; bilaterally symmetrical elevation with canted bays to outer ranges and first-floor balcony to centre formed from flat roofs of bays; enclosed by railing of an original design. Casement windows of authentic design. Chimney breasts terminating in high axial stacks to returns. This house won second prize in a 'Country Life' competition for the smaller middle class house and was illustrated in one of that magazine's special publications just before the war. The architect's emphasis on cubic form, underscored by the sill band and canted bays, was quite progressive for the time, reflecting something of the popularity of Frank Lloyd Wright's work to 1909. This highly geometric style stood in stark contrast to- the dominant Georgian revival mode, and anticipated the development of British Modernist modes of design between the wars.
