Residence of A.W. Vowell, Esq.


Item is an architectural drawing by Samuel Maclure prepared for A.W. Vowell.

This file contains drawings for three different houses. William Ridgway Wilson prepared plans and an elevation for alterations to a house (AP1796-AP1797, dated June 6, 1911). Maclure drew plans for basement alterations of what appears to be a different house in Nov. 1912 (AP1798 AP1799) and in Oct. 1913 prepared an as-found drawing of the ground floor of this second house (AP1800). He also prepared a set showing a plan, elevations and details for a third house (AP1801-AP1806). The house altered by Ridgway Wilson consists of a basement, ground floor and attic. The ground floor comprises a hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen, servery, larder (called a pantry on the plan) two bedrooms, morning room, bathroom and water closet. The attic contains three bedrooms. The as-found drawing shows the ground floor containing a hall, living room, conservatory, library, dining room, kitchen, pantry, woodshed and man's room. The third house had two storeys and a basement. The basement and ground floor plans are missing, but the second floor consisted of a landing, three bedrooms, box room, sleeping balcony and bathroom. The exterior was finished in roughcast, except for the basement and porches, which were faced with stone.
