House with Studio, near Guildford Before 1896. Designed by Harold Ainsworth Peto (1854-1933) and Sir Ernest George (1839-1922). “In A House with Studio, near Guildford, still greater simplicity of mass is effected, the projecting bays alone break the plain cube. The porch is distinctly original in treatment; by it you see that although it is evidently the main entrance, yet that it is not the front of the house. It is also pleasant to notice how the halftimber framework emphasises the fall of the ground, which adds a basement to the building on one side. ” (32).
