Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Blackwell (built 1898-1900, as designed by Baillie Scott) is an example of British domestic architecture at the beginning of the 20th century. The style is of the Arts and Crafts type. The house was built as a holiday home for Sir Edward Holt, a wealthy Manchester brewer. It is situated overlooking Lake Windermere and across to the Coniston Fells in the town of Bowness-on-Windermere.Blackwell has survived with almost all its original decorative features intact. The house is furnished with original furniture and objects from the period. The gardens are laid out in a series of terraces, and flowers and herbs border the terraces, which form sun traps on the south side of the house.show more
