Notes / History Built in 1902 for H.G. Quartermain (architect for the John Innes estate company).

Henry Goodall Quartermain was the first architect of major importance to be appointed by John Innes. He lived in Merton Park and was largely responsible for the houses designed between 1873 and 1903. Much of his work was in the "Queen Anne" and "Domestic Revival" styles. Typical features are tile hanging, half timbering, canted and multi-storey bays, gables and bargeboards.
