1874 – Orrest Bank, Orpington, Kent

Architect: George & Vaughan


From The Building News, November 20 1874: “One of our illustrations this week represents Orrest Bank, a house just erected at Orpington for T. Woodhams Fox, Esq., from the drawings of Messrs. George and Vaughan. The walls are of red brick, the ground-floor being 15in. throughout, while the upper stories are of 9in. brickwork covered with weather tiles bedded in cement. The roofs are of red tiles, similar to those on the walls. The half-timbered gables are filled-in with brick in cement, and the plaster panels are relieved by devices drawn on the face. The builders were Messrs. Payne and Balding, of Bromley, Kent.”
