SU 84 NW 11/353 Meads


Marked on the map as Baldridges. Completed by 1935; architect, Harold Falkner. Falkners conception was based on 2 barns or farmbuildings from a Ma Phillips house in Alton which were placed end to end and then remodelled. Steeply pitched tile roof descending very low. The timber-framed construction of the brns is visible primarily n the entrance front and in the south-west return wall. The entrance front has post-and-pan timbering on the 1st floor which overhangs above the ground floor. A 2-storey timber-framed porch with upper floor cantilevered out beyond 3-centred doorway; timber- framed projection with half-hipped gable over at right hand end of front. 2 Window bays to left and right of porch, right hand bays widely spaced. The south-west return wall again is of timber-framed construction with the centre portion rising up to the apex of the roof and with fenestration on 3 levels. A huge hipped tile canopy is cantilevered out from the apex and I supported on wooden brackets. Behind this is an oriel window of 3 lights in 2 tiers flanked by si:L1g1e lights to either side. Below this in the middle of the wall there is a 4-light window and then on the ground floor a 3-centred, headed doorway with moulded frame flanked to either side by a 3-light mullioned window. A short distance before the doorway rises a fountain of circular basins on different levels.
The garden front faces south-east. A very wide half-hipped projection at
the left hand end answers a projection in the corresponding bay in the entrance
front. A 5-light splayed bay on both floors here. Then, as far as the north-east end, the roof is bright down lower; elevation of one storey and attic except for centre entrance bay which is of 2 storeys with hipped canopy over. Except 1 in the centre bay and in the bays at either end of the garden front [see immediately above and later] the ground floor window bays are arcaded and there is an open colonnade in the 3 bays immediately to the left of the centre bay; a flight of steps leads down from the third of those to the garden terrace.
The exit from the living room in the centre bay leads across a patterned brick bridge over a pool and again down a flight of steps to the terrace. To the right of the centre bay are 4 arcaded wing bays, each punctuated by a buttress of brick and tile and each conta1ning a semi-circular lunette. A further window bay to the right hand; half-hipped gable to roof at right hand end.
