Type and Period (1)
House. 1907. Designed by Walter Brierley for W A Pearson. Red brick in English bond under a tiled roof, the house forms an 'L' shape around the entrance forecourt. The main house has an entrance porch leading to the hallway from which drawing room, dining room and kitchen lead off. The service wing forms the 'L'. The drawing room has french windows to the rear garden and a square bay to the side. On this wing of the house the double string course is designed to give a jettied effect, while elsewhere it is more conventional. The windows are a mix of casement and sash, with small panes, and vary in size and height. At the back of the house, a curved course of bricks below the central window reflects the flattened arch above this and most of the other windows. Tile is used to form kneelers at the corners of the gables, and the cast iron gutter supports are finished with a restrained decorative curl. The outbuilding alongside the servants wing is also in English bond with the same use of tiles and gutter supports, and with hand-made external hinges on the doors. A chimney stack suggests this as the original wash house, with coal house and store behind. A further outbuilding beyond this is similar in design but using a stretcher bond and without the distinctive hinges and gutter supports, probably a later addition. Close by is a small square outbuilding with a hipped roof, built in Flemish bond brick, probably not original. INTERIOR: retains a large number of original features. Only one of the original fireplaces (in the dining room) remains, and the layout of the upper floor has been somewhat altered. However, the internal doors and door surrounds are original although some have been moved. All retain their brass handles and lock mechanisms, those in the servants quarters having a visible lock housing while those in the main house have the mechanism hidden. The parquet floor in the hall and the plain staircase also original. The windows retain their brass furniture and plain rolled moulding on the edge of the frame. History: this house cost £1,431.
