____________________

The design was later (1888) used for THE COTTAGE.
Station Road,
Bishop's Itchington, near Warwick.

For Michael H. Lakin.

The Cottage is Voysey's first completed building.

Lakin wanted a similar design.
There are two design versions, with and without half-timbering.
The version without half-timbering was chosen and the design for an unexecuted cottage had been altered.
