Relation

Accompanying text: "The walling is of red Suffolk brick, with beer-stone dressings, the roof being covered with Whitland, Abbey slates. The staircase is of wainscot, and the chief feature in the hall and vestibule is the mosaic flooring. The studio is arranged so as to be distinct from the house, and has a clear floor space of 50 ft. by 30 ft., being one of the largest private studios in London. The builders were Messrs. Downsing and Son, of Notting Hill. A free Classic style of architecture was chosen for the building, which works out well in execution, with dignity." Maurice B. Adams, Artists' Houses (London: B. T. Batsford, 1883), No. XVI, "Mr. John Petties' [sic] House and Studio," p. 9.
