Elegant home full of history
Published 28/07/14



Eyot House is an impressive Edwardian Grade II listed detached family home full of history starting with the design by architect Halsey Ralph Ricardo.

Ricardo worked closely with his client Reginald Blunt and English potter and designer, William De Morgan who is best known for his work in ceramics. Many fine examples of De Morgan’s work can be found throughout Eyot House.

The front door features three colourful glazed panels and opens to a beautiful wide entrance hall featuring a tile archway and antique fireplace surrounded with Delft tiles dating from 1648. Glazed double doors at the end of the entrance hall lead to the delightful south-east facing garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room is flooded with natural light and offers fantastic space for cooking and dining with free flowing space between the two distinct areas linked with a graceful archway.

Historic features include a working butler’s bell and beautifully preserved original coving. Next door to the kitchen/breakfast room is the double aspect dining room with oak flooring and an art deco fireplace.


The sitting room is situated off the entrance hall with a large window allowing more natural light to stream in to the space. The marble fireplace is surrounded with more wonderful Delft tiles.

The triple aspect drawing room has an imposing stone fireplace that is the focal point of the room. The ground floor is completed with a utility room, large cloakroom with fantastic built-in storage cupboard and a study enjoying views of the enclosed front garden. A wide turning staircase leads to the first floor. A pretty window keeps the space light and bright. The hallway features two window seats again next to wide windows.

When entering the master bedroom your attention is drawn to the graceful bow window which enjoys views across the enclosed private rear garden. The large fire place adds a sense of grandeur to the bedroom which then sweeps round to a spacious dressing room. The centre point of the dressing room is undoubtedly the elegant claw foot bath.

Each of the further four bedrooms enjoy outlooks across the peaceful back garden as well as working fireplaces. The family bathroom features an elegant claw foot bath on original, glass tiles. The first floor Continued on page XXXiii
