House created around 1900 in the style of the Arts and Crafts Movement* with its distinctive exterior chimneys and interior stained glass.

This was an English decorative arts movement of the second half of the 19th century. Arts and Craft style homes are typically made up of elements with traditional proportions. The pitched roof span is no greater than 4.5m to 6m with pitches of 47.5-55°. Eaves are low, often reaching down to first floor level in many parts, often with a catslide roof on at least one elevation.
Typically an important part of a building is the large chimney which is often tall and wide with ornately decorated stacks with traditional brickwork or stonework. The windows often consist of multiple, small panes set in hung casements which are usually timber or metal. The windows are usually centrally located in each bay.
