Synopsis

From humble cottages and quintessential village houses to elegant manor houses, The Cotswold House is the first book to give a complete overview of the history, social and architectural, of the Cotswold home.



Characteristic features tie all these buildings together. Limestone, whether grey or cream, appears throughout Cotswold homes, its workability apparent in the

numerous mullioned windows, solid chimney stacks and fine doorways and porch heads.



This book considers the differing periods and styles and the characteristic features, illustrated throughout with examples from across the region and with a focus on individual details, from exterior features such as stone roofing, gables and chimneys, to interior features of timber work, fireplaces and furniture.
