Notes: We this week give an illustration of the successful design of cottage villa by Mr H E Clifford, architect, Glasgow, for the Utilitas Land Company, Limited. The villa is designed with the view of producing at limited cost a more picturesque character than is usually attained in small houses that are square in plan. The building occupies an area of 33 feet by 27 feet, exclusive of projections. The ground floor contains two sitting-rooms, kitchen, and scullery, with other conveniences. The upper floor, the greater part of which is in the roof, contains four bedrooms, bathroom, and napery closet, the ceilings being respectively 10 and 9 feet high. The external walls would be built of brick with stone dressings. The interior finishings of yellow pine stained and varnished. The upper portion of transomed windows glazed with quarry glass. The roofs to be covered with green slates with tiled ridges. [Building News 30 May 1879 p600]
