1/21 Greenside; The Rest and Ivy Cottage


Includes No 118, Rossall Road.
Four dwellings, 1901, by Sir Edwin Lutyens. Brick, rendered and whitewashed
with red tiled hipped and swept roofs. In a free version of Arts and Crafts
domestic style. Group of 4 ranges of building of 2 storeys, joined at their
rear corners to form a quadrangle, with central courtyard approached by arches
through the north and south ranges, the 4 dwellings ingeniously disposed
with their front doors in the re-entrants. The windows (all casements with
leaded lights) are close to the ground on the ground floor but hug the
eaves of the first floor. Front door and re-entrant to Greenside, at
south-west corner, now covered by large conservatory.

Originally conceived as parts of minor elements in a comprehensive scheme
for development of Rossall Beach Estate, sketched by Lutyens 19O1-O2.
(R.I.B.A. Lut. 28/13/1O: plans sections and elevations for group of 1O
cottages include end groups of 4 which match the item listed. Few other elements
were executed, all in modified form by T.G. Lumb).
