Dorset Tudor-bethan heritage home celebrated

Historic Tudor-bethan heritage homes are making headlines again. When John Lennon’s former Surrey country house was recently listed for sale, the spotlight fell on an architectural style which takes its influences from the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 1900s.

Tower Road House

This charming Tudor-bethan home in Poole Dorset, for sale by Berkeleys, is a magnificent example of a popular 1930s style which imitated Tudor architecture and heralded a Tudor revival at that time. It was built in 1935.

Taking its influences from the Arts and Crafts movement, this house style embodies a mix of timber and red brick features. The areas of intricate, herringbone red brickwork, the wooden window frames with iron casements and the leaded panes are all signature mock-Tudor features.

The central porch has a slanting hood, supported by broad timber columns with iron brackets featuring decoratively today. The house is two-storeys high and has two symmetrical, angled sides, originally designed to bring in maximum light to the interior. Inside, there is a magnificent, oak-panelled reception hallway and false ceiling beams feature throughout. The exposed brick fireplace in the hallway echoes an Inglenook style.
