High Gaut (White Cliffe),

St Margaret's at Cliffe, Kent.


For P. A. Barendt.


A pre-existing building remodelled and extended by Voysey. Later known as Fairway, and now High Gaut.

According to Joanna Symonds, a small, compact two-storey house
has been transformed into a rectangular bungalow with two bay windows on one side and a hipped roof.

Text from The British Architect, 25th September 1914, p.184.



Pevsner's Kent: North & East (with John Newman, 2013) says:

ST MARGARET'S, SOUTH FORELAND. One or two holiday cottages in idyllic isolation on the cliff top looking straight across to France. Among them HIGH GAULT [sic] (but as Fairway), by Voysey, 1914. It is the Voysey style reduced to its essentials, one-storey roughcast walls, with two mullioned bay windows, under a huge grey-green hipped roof. No concession is made to the position and the view. But the tall, strong chimneystacks are of purple engineering brick, proof against sea spray.
