“The front of this house faces the south, and as the plot of ground is 60ft. wide, an attempt has been made to keep the plan as compact as possible. The hall and porch are the principal features on the ground floor, the latter baring a massive oak door, with wrought -iron hinges. On the first floor and others are six large bedrooms, one dressingroom and a box-room, bath-room, &c. The house is now in course of erection, and is being built for Mr. .John H. 8hankland, who has also purchased a plot to the back to have more garden accommodation. The materials are local facing bricks, the upper portions of the walls being cement rough-cast, and the tQes are being supplied by the Broseley Tilery Co. The woodwork will be painted white throughout. Messrs. H. and J . Waterman, of Watford, are the builders, and the Sestive of the sacred use of this most necessary plans have been prepared by Mr. A.N. Prentice.” Published in The Building News, May 24 1901.
