SE 6055 NE NEW EARSWICK SYCAMORE AVENUE (south side)

9/61 Nos 18 and 20

GV II

Pair of semi-detached houses. 1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Lobby-entry plan with living room and scullery side by side, and coal shed and WC in outbuilding. Brick with French tile roof. 2 storeys, 4 first-floor windows with shared central gable. Half-glazed doors and standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Each cottage has door beneath segmental arch with 2-light and single-light casements to left and right, and outbuilding to either end. First floor: 2-light casements to gable and single-light casements to outer bays. Stacks removed. The particular significance of New Earswick lies in its contribution to the development of low cost housing in Britain. Experience gained and practices introduced here were incorporated extensively into the Tudor Walters Report of 1918 which was instrumental in the passing of the Addison Act of 1919. Plans from New Earswick influenced the Government Manual on low cost housing which followed the Act.
