Arts & Crafts Bungalow Holding Its Own

There’s a bungalow fairly near me that has been the subject of much speculation over the last five years.  It was built in the early 1920s, has very art deco brick window surrounds – a very pronounced styling with matching brick built porch and wonderful patterning in that brickwork.  There were four bungalows built at the same time apparently.  Well to look at the other three, you would never believe that this sort of beautiful artwork had existed – the others had been ‘modernised’ years ago. i.e. the wonderful art deco features completely ripped out and tossed on the scrap heap.  Such a pity.  The buyers of the remaining one have retained the frontage – but the massive earth works around the rest of the building begs one to wonder for how long is the place remaining in situ.  With the interest in older design now being appreciated, I hope so much that this dear little bungalow keeps its place just up the road!
