White House, Downage, Barnet, Greater London
This house was built in 1934-5 by Charles Evelyn Simmons. It was built for Haymills Ltd builders and developers in a Moderne style of architecture. It stands out from other houses built by Haymills in the area for its distinguished and unaltered facade. Its detailing is far more inventive than on most houses of this type. Haymills were a leading building firm building fine quality houses in North London during the 1930s. They had a tradition of employing interesting architects for their designs.
