Full description

Grade II. House. 1934. By Colin Lucas for Mrs. M.Sewell. Reinforced concrete slab roof. Two storeys. The plan is arranged around the living room on the ground floor, facing south west with kitchen and boiler room etc at either end. The smaller first floor has bedrooms opening onto small roof - terraces at either end. The windows are steel casements and fixed lights, now replaced to the kitchen, living room and boiler room by aluminium windows of compatible form also designed by Lucas. The garden front is symmetrical, with 3 bays of 3:2:3 panes to each storey; large overhang to roof. The service rooms break forward and are blind on this front. The entrance front has a small glazed flat-roofed porch at left from which rises diagonally the cantilevered staircase with raking strip window. Flush garage doors to right. The interior is completely plain except for a fire surround of broad flat slabs of genuine travertine. Floor of maple wood. Upstairs floors are of compressed sawdust. Flush doors with original door furniture. A very well preserved example of a small house in the International Modern Style (B1).
