1880 – Woodhouse, Devon

Architect: Ernest George & Peto


Perspective view & ground plan published in The Building News, July 2nd 1880. Designed for Sir George Baker.”Woodhouse, for Sir George Baker, Bart., is now building at Uplume, Devon, near Lyme Regis. It is beautifully placed on rising ground, in one of the loveliest coombes of this part of Devonshire, with a fine view over the Lyme Bay, and is situated near Eonsdon, a large work just completed for Sir Henry Peek by the same architects. The ground-story of the building is of random-coursed stone, built hollow, with brick lining. The upper portion of the building is of timber, boarded and felted over and covered with weather-tiling. The gables are of oak timber work. The contract was taken in competition by Mr. Luscombe, of Exeter, for the sum of £4,525.”
