Architect: Ernest George & Peto

0065

A compact little house erected for Mr. Gainsford Bruce. “The ground-floor is of red brick, and the upper story of weather-tiling upon quartering, boarded and felted. The dining-room has an ingle with settles, and the walls are panelled to the ceiling. The hall is panelled to the height of the doors, and the drawing-room has a panelled dado and an enriched ceiling in low relief. The bedrooms are all on the one floor, except an attic and a box- room above. The stables, with dove-cot, adjoin the offices. The weather-tiled gables are well grouped, and the house has a home-like, pleasant aspect. The contract for the house (without the stable) was taken by Mr. B. Payne, of Bromley.” Perspective View including ground plan. Published in The Building News, July 1st 1881.
