Summerhouse, Kingsbury Manor, 288, Kingsbury Road - Brent

Summerhouse, circa 1899, by William West Neve, who designed the adjoining Kingsbury Manor for Mary Blair, Duchess of Sutherland. Built in the Arts and Crafts style, timber-framed with patterned brick nogging on a brick plinth edged with stone, and a hipped thatched roof. The thatched roof is deteriorating and the building is in need of repair. The Local Authority and the owner have begun discussions to develop a strategy for the summerhouse's repair and re-use.
