A well-detailed, and little-altered Arts and Crafts cottage, built in 1924 for William Hudson, a wholesale jeweller. This information comes from the 1924-5 valuation roll, which describes the house as 'in course of erection'. The main features of the interior appear to be intact. The slightly Art-Deco fireplaces in the dining and drawing rooms are rather quirky, with their small grates set asymmetrically in much larger mantelpieces. -
