House, now flats. 1900-01. By Francis Bedford and Sidney Kitson. For Edward Audus Hirst. Gritstone (snecked) to ground floor, tile-hung jettied upper floor with timber-framed cross-wing and brick chimneys; steeply-pitched tile roof. In Vernacular Revival style. 2 storeys with attic, 3 bays. Central timber porch under deep jetty with spandrels carved with foliage and initials: 'EAH' and 'EMN'; mullioned windows of 3 and 5 lights. First-floor windows all gabled: a 6-light oriel window in the timber-framed left bay, 4-light casements centre and right, leaded panes. Deep eaves, tall brick stack forward of ridge between bays 2 and 3 and at gable left. INTERIOR: the front principal rooms retain original fine details and craftsmanship including: entrance hall with half-glazed door and screen to former stair hall with leaded lights, fireplace with wooden surround framing 3 beaten copper panels with Art Nouveau bosses and scrolls, deep frieze of Tudor roses and leaves; front left: inglenook-style fireplace in panelled recess with Classical surround, flanking fire windows with leaded lights, benches and moulded architrave, ceiling friezes of oak leaves, naturalistic flowers and foliage; front right: fine inlaid panelling, fire surround, fitted cupboards with leaded glass fronts, copper Art Nouveau light switch and service bell plaques. The staircase removed when the house divided into 6 flats. 'A good example of how the achievement of Norman Shaw and his generation was diffused throughout the country, raising the general standard of domestic architecture...' (Stamp and Goulancourt, p.216). The architects were referred to in Muthesius' 'Das Englische Haus' (1904) as 'a firm of very promising young architects'. (Kelly's Directory of Leeds: 1905-; Stamp, G & Goulancourt, A: The English House 1860-1914: 1986-: 216).
