This image is an enlargement of an engraving of the Blithewood Gatehouse designed by A.J. Davis from an edition of A.J. Downing’s Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Rural Architecture and Landscape Gardening. Interestingly, Downing describes this structure as a “simple and effective cottage in the bracketed style--octagonal in its form, and very compactly arranged internally.”
Davis, Alexander Jackson
