Tyne and Wear HER(8524): Monkton, Monkton Lane, Monkton Villa - Details
Monkton, Monkton Lane, Monkton Villa
A small late Victorian or Edwardian house in warm red brick below a roughcast render first floor. Typical of the period, its high quality design has a stepped footprint with a side porch, original front door and a sandstone bay window with a brick arched lintel to the first floor window above. The roof is enlivened by chimneys, carved bargeboards and timber finials. The low red brick boundary wall does not reflect those around but the moulded gates and gateposts are original. The uPVC windows detract from the composition.
