Annesley Lodge, 8 Platt's Lane, Hampstead, London

Pevsner's London 4: North (with Bridget Cherry, 1998) says:

[Hampstead 2B: the Redington Road area]. In Platt's Lane the most interesting house is No 8, ANNESLEY LODGE, the best Voysey house in London, built for his father in 1895. L-shaped plan with front door in the inner angle. Typical Voysey sloping buttresses and roughcast, with stone dressings to a remarkable long band of low first-floor windows just below the eaves. The mullions have no mouldings at all, and the whole house is astonishingly ahead of its date. The main entrance is in the angle of the two wings, leading to a large corner entrance hall. The interior has been subdivided.
