Also known as Voysey House.
A two-storey house in abstract vernacular style with massive green-slate roof and plain roughcast walls. Flat-roofed porch to front elevation and small flat-roofed service wing at rear.
"This house is to be built in brick roughcast, with slate roof, stone windows, and iron casements, lead lights, oak joinery, tile sills, and tile skirtings, flush with plaster. Black Dutch tile paving over the entire ground floor. Rough plastered walls, distempered white. Small brick fireplaces, black-leaded. Solid floors and air-flues in each room, to secure equable temperature throughout the year, and a minimum of dust-catching places, and domestic labour and keep clean. Also no periodical decorators' bills." – from The British architect, 8th November 1912, p.316, probably in Voysey's own words.
