Pevsner's Cumberland & Westmorland (1967) says:

Kendal. No 103 SEDBERGH ROAD is Voysey's LITTLE HOME [sic, Holme], 1908, small, but treated with all the care Voysey was capable of. Just an oblong with a hipped roof and one chimney. Entrance recessed under a big plain arch, a motif repeated by innumerable spec builders. A big canopy of substantial timbers shelters the porch. The staircase window is typical Voysey (three lights, two transoms, no mouldings whatever), as are the other windows with their flat mullions and quoining. It is all inspired by rural Tudor, yet in its plainness and flushness on the way to the new style of the C20.
