Local Listing: Locally listed in 2004. Dates from
circa 1850 and is in the Tudor Revival style. It has
rendered elevations under steeply pitched clay tile roofs.
Three courses of plain tiles alternate with three courses of
fish-scale tiles running the full height of the roof slopes and
there are crested ridge tiles (some missing). The front
elevation incorporates a two-storey projecting gable porch and
the porch, end gables and dormer windows have mock timber
framing and elaborate, pierced bargeboards. A
contemporary, two-storey coach house in matching materials and
details adjoins to the north.
Comment: The local listing details appear in the
appraisal for the Oaks (Merridale Road) Conservation Area, in
which this house stands; it is therefore somewhat more
detailed than usual. Certainly a remarkable design, with
the coach house being even more remarkable. Unfortunately it
seems impossible to get a decent photo of the entirety.
