House, built in 1913 for the painter Augustus John to designs
by the Dutch architect Robert van t'Hoff. Painted brick with a
pan tile roof. Single storey, with dormers, over a high half
basement. Parapets to gable-ended returns. Symmetrical
elevation with entrance reached up double flight of stairs and
flanked by windows. Glazing bars and overlight of an original
decorative pattern. Similar design to glazing bars of roof
dormers. Ridge stack on axis with entrance. The plan form
recalls lobby entrance houses. One room to either side of
"stack bay" designed originally as dining room and entrance
hall. Passage and stairs to rear, backed by the largest room
in the structure, John's studio, which extends almost to rear
boundary wall, 37' by 25' with an 18' ceiling; large window to
north; some alterations to largely glazed end wall. Gallery at
one end, with fireplace underneath; studio railing and
supports show the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright's work as
published in the famous Wasmuth volume of 1909. Some
firesurrounds and grates of original design; glazed interior
doors with door furniture also of original design.
