Peacock House, 2011Formerly known as Peacock House, the Grade I listed property was built in 1906 for Ernest Debenham. Designed by award winning architect Halsey Ricard, the house is built using coloured ceramic tiles, pale terracotta and coloured glazed bricks. The roofs are covered in green tiles from Provence and a miscellany of William De Morgan glazed tiles decorate the interior of the property with peacocks, eagles, flowers and mythical beasts. The domed and galleried hall, at the centre of the house, includes intricate mosaics, added later, to a design by Gaetano Meo and mosaics in the cupola itself depict leaves and branches in green and gold. The library is one of the most interesting features, fitted with mahogany shelving, decorated with mother-of-pearl and inlays of various woods.
