II

Private house and attached garage. 1936 by C Edmund Wilford of Leicester. Brown brick on red brick plinth, flat roofs. The house is a more complex plan than is at first apparent. The principal rooms form near square, with projecting bow windows on ground floor, and with narrower link and enclosed yard to attached garage at slight angle to right. Two storeys, with three-storey staircase tower giving access to roof terrace. Single storey rear loggia now glazed, and single-storey rear service rooms to side of garage, enclosing yard.

Moderne style with some Dutch influence. Main roof with open steel balustrade in the moderne style reminiscent of an ocean liner. Rendered coping over soldier course, with rendered lintels over the windows and soldier course sills; moulded projecting hood links front door to the adjoining window in a single, sweeping composition. Long horizontal windows, with horizontal glazing bars with margin lights incorporating top-opening casements. Projecting prow-like staircase window forms a vertical accent in the long composition. Door with central glazed panels and with similar windows to either side, in a symmetrical composition. Similar glazing to sides and rear, save that bay window to rear has a single large glazed panel. Beyond, former loggia has been infilled with glazing.

Interior not inspected, but noted to retain original staircase and oak floor boards to ground floor.

Included as a well-preserved moderne-style house of striking architectural ambition.
