30 Storey’s Way, built in 1914 to the designs of M. H. Baillie Scott, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons: * Design: as one of Baillie Scott’s smaller houses, it aptly demonstrates his belief that such dwellings should be designed as a ‘roomy cottage’ rather than ‘a mansion in miniature’; * Architectural interest: inspired by the architect’s love of old buildings which lull and soothe the spirit, the low sweep of the roof with its tall chimney stacks and profusion of gabled dormers conveys a sense of shelter and warmth, and the plan form provides an easeful fluidity of living space
