Yateley Road Arts & Crafts House

Fully Booked - Waiting List Places only

Tuesday 4th December 2018

10.30 am for 11.00 am

This house is one of four on Yateley Road designed and built by H T Buckland. They are in the late Arts and Crafts style with hipped roofs and asymmetrical features. The one we are going to see is the one Bucland built for himself in 1899 and where he lived until he died in 1951. It has been subsequently listed Grade 1.

 

The interior has been very little altered with interesting stained glass,original light fittings, good joinery and door furniture, four fireplaces with almost Art Nouveau copper hoods and some excellent plaster work. It is a lived in house but allows one a really genuine view of the sort of interior as it would have been at the turn of the century.

Although December is not the best time to view the garden, if the weather is not too challenging it is well worth a look. The layout is still based on the original Gertrude Jekyll inspired plan. It has a formal rose garden and criss-crossing flights of stairs and paths up the slopes of the quarry, that predates the development of Yateley Road. There was also a large area devoted to fruit and vegetables, a significant part of the self-sufficiency ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement.
