DescriptionRiddell simultaneously began development of the Nursery Road Estate immediately n off Deans Lane, beginning with an avenue of plane trees up to another classical house by Lutyens: Chussex, 1908, for W. Herbert Fowler, club secretary. Middle three bays of the garden front in the manner of 1710, with panelled parapet, pilasters supporting urns and segmental-arched French windows. The side bays turn back as hip-roofed wings on the more conventional entrance front. All his mastery of carefully built-up masses disappeared with the change in style. (Chinoiserie screen to the stair instead of a balustrade.) (O’Brien et al., 2022, p.697)
