19.—Munstead Wood : Paved Court and Steps on North Side. The house itself is built of the local stone, with a slightuse of half-timber in the outer wall on the north side. Greatplay is made indoors with heavy oak beams, especially inthe fine corridor on the first floor. The disposition of theworkroom, bookroom, dining-room, etc., is clearly shownon the ground-floor plan (Fig. 17), and need not, therefore,to be described in detail. Some visitors to Munstead Wood Window Treatment 35 have criticized the house on the ground that the windowsare too small and the rooms consequently not light enough.That might be a reasonable criticism if the wishes of theowner had not been taken into account, but the house isthe result of a perfect understanding between architectand client as to the sort of house to be built and its treat-ment. If the light is subdued in some rooms it is preciselybecause that was desired.
