Melford Road 112 Abbey House


Another Grimwood house of 1911 which Arthur Grimwood built for his manager, James McQuae, and his wife Nancy (Arthur's daughter).

Many unusual and striking features such as the central projecting wing with a massive wooden bressumer beam on heavy brackets supporting the oriel window above. Also the arched braces supporting the cut way corner of the house.
