New Houses in Kersley Road

These new houses have curved window heads, echoing he shape of the Ruskin houses we shall see nearby. The houses have sash windows, again like other local houses. They are attempts by the architect to make his new houses blend into the older ones, without pretending to be old. The slate roofs have a gentle slope and have Velux windows let into them to light the top floors in some way. It is not clear from the street exactly what is going on on he top floor.

The road slopes down slightly, so the architect has built each pair of houses level, but a few inches below the next pair. On steep slopes this can make the house look like saw teeth.
