II

House. 1907-09. By Parker and Unwin for Mrs Ashworth. Roughcast with ashlar
dressings and graduated stone slate roof. Rectangular plan linked by a covered walkway at
the front to a boiler room wing and billiard room at left and right respectively. Each
of the 3 blocks has one storey (plus attic rooms) and is dominated, in the C Voysey
manner, by a large hipped roof. Ashlar plinth, battered angled corner buttresses
and overhanging eaves. The door which has a leaded glass panel and copper ironmongery
is centrally placed with 4 small windows to left. The eaves are supported on timber
posts creating a walkway. Long mullioned dormer window. The left wing has 6 bays each
with 3 or 4-light recessed flat-faced stone mullion windows and dormer windows which
break through the eaves. The billiard room wing is of 2 bays and is obscured at front
by a flat-roofed garage. The principal elevation (rear) has 2 square bay windows; the
main roof sweeping down to cover them. Between them are double-doors and a 3-light
window on either side a 1-light window. 9-light dormer window. The windows have
leaded panes and doors retain original fittings. Tall chimney stacks with wide
cornices. A pergola and double-gates with a hipped roof supported on massive piers
enclose the front courtyard. Interior: Design dominated by a full-height room, the
deep plan being lit by the domer windows. A floor was inserted in 1930s but most of
the original fittings including timberwork, light fittings, panelling, doors and fitted
furniture (wardrobe, desk etc) survive. Large inglenook fireplace. "The house
exemplifies, more than any other I can call to mind, the application of those qualities
and principles of architecture for which I have been contending." Parker, The Craftsman,
1910. Charles Jones Ltd, Modern Building Record; 1912, Vol III.
