1879 – “Barrow Point”, Pinner, Middlesex

Architect: Ernest George & Peto


Designed for for W. Barber esq., and published in The Building News, July 4th 1879. “We illustrate this week the drawings by Messrs. Ernest George and Peto, architects, now exhibiting in the Royal Academy Exhibition. The first of these is Barrow Point, Pinner, designed for Mr. Barber to occupy the site of his present house. A characteristic of this house is that it abuts upon the road instead of having the improfitable front garden of a suburban villa. The road frontage is occupied by the ofiices, porch, and hall. The latter is carried up through the first- floor, and is lighted by long bay windows above panelled walls, while a gallery running round the upper portion of the hall leads to the bedrooms.”
