30.6.75 Daneshill House


1903, by Edwin Lutyens, in severe Arts and Crafts style on the north and east, but
Edwardian Baroque on south and west. H-plan house of 2 storeys, with red tile roofing,
walling of thin red bricks laid to Flemish bond, tile heads and cills to smaller
openings. The plain north front has gabled wings (double at the east side), 2:3:1:3:1
windows, a gabled 2-storeyed porch. Most of the windows are diminutive coupled
casements (with brick mullions) but there are 4, 5 and 7 unit lights in the gables.
The boarded door is within an open porch formed by an arch within a moulded rectangular
framework. The south elevation has flanking gables, 3 large dormers, the middle
section eaves being brought low with opening on either side of the centre, the recessed
ceilings being supported on square columns built up of tiles. The dormers are
tile-hung, 2 with gabled and one with hipped roofing, large mullioned and transom
windows; the gabled wings are tile-hung above first-floor level. The west elevation
is elaborately arranged, with a large dormer and 2 smaller 1/2 dormers, eaves at 3
levels above set back walling, the divisions separated by massive chimneys, one having
2 diagonal flues. Within, there is one Tudor style fireplace in brick and tile, with
octagonal sides, stepped cambered opening and tile-on edge decoration.
