6/235 The Casita in the garden at
Iford Manor

GV II


Garden loggia. Circa 1910 by H.A. Peto. Dressed limestone, hipped
stone slate roof. Spanish-style. Three-bay loggia on early C13
coupled marble columns from Verona, supporting carved wooden
frieze, wall to right pierced by billet-moulded square window with
iron grille, two carved roundels including an Agnus Dei, over.
Interior of loggia contains several fragments of sculptured
carving, semi-circular niche containing statue from France,
possibly classical, flanking billet-moulded panels with reliefs
from Naples.
The Casita stands in north west corner of Great Terrace, replacing
an earlier timber garden shed. Reset sculptural fragments were
part of Peto's collection.
