Parlour and living room plan with scullery to rear. 2 storeys with attics, 8 first-floor windows. Standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Penultimate bays break forward and contain canted bays rising through 2 storeys. Central pair of canted bays flanked by replacement doors recessed in round-arched porches and 3-light casements. Projecting bays: 6-light casements beneath hung tiles. 2-light casements to outer bays. Porches with half-glazed doors to gable ends. First floor: pair of 2-light casements beneath wide weatherboarded gable flanked by 3-light half dormer casements. 6-light casements beneath hung tiles to canted bays and 2-light half dormer casements to outer bays. Attic: 2-light casements in diaper- patterned brick to gable ends of projecting bays. Stacks removed. The particular significance of New Earswick lies in its contribution to the development of low cost housing in Britain. Experience gained and practices introduced here were incorporated extensively into the Tudor Walters Report of 1918 which was instrumental in the passing of the Addison Act of 1919. Plans from New Earswick influenced the Government Manual on low cost housing which followed the Act.
