Cottage Hulton Park Estate belonging to Sir William Hulton Bart

Over Hulton, Bolton

New Build

RECENT DESIGNS IN DOMESTIC ARCHITECTURE - The detached cottage, of which we give a view and plan above, has been built on the Hulton Park Estate, belonging to Sir William Hulton, Bart. It is beautifully situated and is planned with the intention of obtaining a commanding view of the park grounds. The materials used are chiefly from the locality, stone slabs from adjoining disused farm buildings being chosen for the roofs, and hand- made buff tinted bricks for all external elevations. The woodwork likewise has been obtained from timber felled on the estate. The plan is so contrived as to get a good living room with recess; and the drawing room, which leads out of the hall, overlooks a charming portion of the estate. There are five good bedrooms, with bath and lavatory accommodation provided.

 The pair of semi-detached cottages illustrated on this page are situated on the main highway leading from Chorley to Manchester, and have just been completed at a cost of £1,200. These too have an excellent view of the Hulton Park grounds, and the materials have likewise been obtained locally; but in this case stucco and cement have been used for the external elevation. The architect of these three houses is Mr. George E. Tonge, of Southport.
