Pair of semi-detached houses. c1864-5. By John Burlison, aided by Alfred Bell of Clayton and Bell, both stained-glass manufacturers, for themselves; 1868 converted to one house and interior Gothicised by Bell and Charles Buckridge; c1895 divided again. Yellow stock brick with red and white brick dressings, bands and diaper decoration. Slated roofs with dormers and tall brick slab chimney-stacks. Gothic style. EXTERIOR: 2 and 3 storeys with attics and basement. Main front irregular with 4-window centre (roof altered to make additional attic storey) flanked by projecting gabled wings, 3-lights to left, 2 to right wing with lower lean-to storey, behind which there is a 2-light gable with chimney and rising roof. Left hand wing has 3-light 2-storey bay, with arcaded brick balustrade, linking it to rectangular tower at angle with pyramidal roof and corbelled oriel window on return. Most windows are lancets, where multiple lights, with colonnettes having carved capitals. Ground floor arcaded, forming porches at angles. Left hand return has circular tower with lancets and conical roof; to left, a chimney breast rising through full height. Rear, elevation with wide half-hipped bay having a large projecting canted ground floor bay with arcaded brick balustrade to provide a balcony. INTERIOR: not inspected but noted that surviving interior decoration is of fine quality, including fireplaces, stained glass and a good surviving scheme of painted wall decoration. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached polychrome brick patterned walls having gabled pointed arch gateways and small arcaded openings; on left hand return to Lyndhurst Road, wall is buttressed and stepped with a round-arched entrance. Leading from gateway to porch of No.1, an inner wall with grouped arcaded openings. HISTORICAL NOTE: Burlison was Bell's father-in-law and, as first built, the house contained residences for both families with an internal door between. Burlison died in 1868 and Bell's family took over the whole building naming it Bayford House. Bell then employed Buckeridge to help produce a wildly ornamented interior. After Bell's death in 1895 the house was divided again.
