The Elm Tree, Cowley
Architect Henry T. Hare who designed a number of significant early 20th Century buildings.
"1902. By H T Hare. Stone plinth, rendered and painted above. 1 storey
and attic, central block with angled wings. 5 light mullion and transom
lattice windows on either side of central door, with tall hood over. 5 light
window on left, 2 3-light windows on right. Central dormer. Steep pitched
tile roof with 2 stacks."
