Modern bungalows can be unattractive and often there is little evidence of any input at all from an architect. Holly Lodge is clearly an exception with much thought given to the design and choice of materials. The deep tiled roof gives height to the building and embraces the whole length of the house, including the garage. The gables are partly timber clad and project nicely over the curved window bays whilst the chamfering of the bricks round the porch adds a nice touch. Even the garage doors deserve study with iron hinges, nail studding and tiny decorative windows. The modern UPVC windows replicate the originals. Built in 1953 by George Grimwood and Sons.
