Details

SD 80 NE HEYWOOD MANCHESTER ROAD (east side) 9/17 Edgecroft 27.5.1976 II

House. 1921.By Edgar Wood. Brick with stone slate roof and sandstone dressings. Two rooms wide by two deep with corner porch, hall and stairs. An added garage is attached to the north-east. 4-bay, 2-storey front elevation with semi- circular opening to the recessed corner porch. Plain 2, 3 and 4-light casement windows, the ground floor being of 3 lights with timber mullions and transom, and a tall opening in bay 3 lighting the stair and landing. The eaves overhang except at the corners where a large parapet continues round into the coped gables. Steeply pitched roof. The right hand elevation has a canted bay with unmoulded mullion and transom windows to ground floor and mullioned windows to the first. All windows are leaded. The rear has a similar bay window with timber casements in place of the mullions and transoms: the roof to the rear is flat. The interior is virtually complete and includes an angle fireplace with blue bell pattern tile surround by F. Day and cavetto surround: a 1920 fireplace by J.H. Sellers with yellow Sienna marble mantel and surround, another fireplace which Wood designed for F.W. Jackson in 1908 and a panelled staircase. The gardens, walls, gates and house were all designed integrally and form a remarkably fine example of Wood small domestic work. His last work before retiring.
