11/63 No 6 (Farrago) and Washhouse to right

- II

House. 1908-9, by David Reynard Robinson for himself. Bolted steel frame, with brick walls with stone dressings, mass-concrete floors, slate roof. Ornamental and pictorial brick and tile cladding both inside and out. Three storeys, 2 bays, with bathroom and 'gazebo' to front, and rear wing. Canted bay under separate gable to right. 3-panel main door, behind open gabled timber porch, to ground floor of bay; 2-pane sashes with sills under shouldered lintels with projecting vermiculated keyblocks to first floor, 4- pane sashes with sills to 2nd floor. 'Gazebo' has large rectangular window opening under swept moulded coping: return cornice has Lombard frieze. 4- pane sash in architrave to bathroom. The chief interest of the otherwise conventional exterior elevation of this house lies in the unrestrained and unconventional use of everyday building materials as decoration. Bands of glazed bricks run horizontally across the facade with in flat areas of colour in constantly shifting zig-zags. Patterned tiles are used as cladding to the 1st floor bathroom which is supported at its outer corner on two upended salt-glazed sewer pipes. A Biblical scene, some of the elements some of which are upside down, decorates the gable over the canted bay. Interior: ground floor. Housekeeper's room to right totally clad in decorative tilework including a rare graffito example. Exposed bolted-up frame and concrete infilling to ceiling. Stair to first floor with marble treads and brown moulded and plain glazed brick risers in stairwell lined with decorative tiles, some Spanish, in panels. 1st floor: panelled octagonal drawing room to front of house decorated with repeating stencilled motif on a painted ground. Re-used late C18 fireplace in Adam style to rear wall. Landing: tiled floor, tiled dado, wall above dado tiled in large panels with borders of plain tiles in shifting colours. Rear kitchen: similar treatment to landing with moulded brown-glazed tiles to skirting, dado with decorative tiles in small panels, upper wall with large panels of tiles mostly in Arts and Crafts derived floral designs. Rear scullery and outside toilet also lined with decorative and some Dutch pictorial tiles, arranged for the most part in panel form. A distinctive feature of the floor of this area is the use of broken and cut tiles to form a kaleidoscopic pattern in contrast to the more formal treatment of walls elsewhere. Winding stair to 2nd floor has heavy turned newels with acorn finials, turned balusters, and moulded handrail. Joinery and flooring throughout the house is of high standard and includes several 4-panel doors in moulded doorcases. Separate washhouse to right is of similar character; the interior is clad with decorative and pictorial tiles in panels.
