Excerpt from The Architectural Record, Vol. 39: January June, 1916

Let us consider the details. Approach ing the house, the first impression is of the long west wall and the stable at one end, and the house at the other - a view of the whole estate. As we turn into the entrance court on the south, we no tice a long pool with white marble curb in the foreground, beyond it the fine en trance doorway. This doorway is the main feature in an unsymmetrical ele vation. The door itself is a heavy pan eled, medieval-looking thing, as are all the doors in the first story of the house. (incidentally, those who are interested in the technical side of the profession may care to refer to the files of The Architec tural Record for April, 1914, containing a special article on the work of Walker and Gillette, and see how closely two ex cellent preliminary sketches have been followed out in the photographs of the completed work. These are the garden elevation of the house, illustrated as a head-piece on the first page of the article, and the pen-and-ink sketch on page 297, of this entrance court, on the west of the house.) Entering from the court, we find ourselves in a lower hall paved with tile, with walls of tinted plaster, somewhat the color of sandstone and spanned with an undecorated groin-vaulted ceiling. Off this entrance hall Open two dressing suites for visitors, finished in tints of faded old rose. Unusual indeed is the main stair way of brick treads and risers, topped with an extremely simple iron rail.
