Details

BRYAN ROAD 1. 5113 (West Side) Edgerton 25.7.78 Stoneleigh SE 1218 21/276 II 2. Mid C19. Hammer-dressed stone. Pitched tile roof. Elaborately shaped gables. 2 storeys and attics. Picturesque plan. Mullioned and transomed windows, most with pointed relieving arches which have continuous moulded imposts. Steep 2-centred arched door in long gabled porch with moulded 2-centred arch: sides have arcades of 3 moulded 2-centred arches on short columns with elaborate foliate capitals. 3-storey tower also with shaped gables on each side, and pyramidal tile roof. Stacks with crocketed cornice and caps with geometrical ashlar ornament. Ripped roofed conservatory to rear. Some time before 1891 the Manchester architect George Faulkner Armitage (1849-1937) was commissioned to add on a billiard room for Henry Martin, with internal joinery of such high quality that it was accorded a double page illustration in The British Architect of February 1891. G F Armitage had presumably established a reputation in Huddersfield with his art furniture and interior decoration shown at the 1883 Huddersfield Exhibition, and illustrated in The Cabinet Maker and Art Furnisher of 1st September 1883. The billiard room has apparently been altered, but there is much elaborate late C19 joinery inside, which may be by Armitage.
