Briarcourt – Edgar Wood designed this wonderful Arts & Crafts house in 1894. Inspired by irregular Jacobean vernacular halls, it was celebrated nationally and internationally for its vigorous design and artistic quality. The interior includes, wood panelling, carving, internal timber framing, built in furniture, inglenook fireplaces and a magnificent moulded plaster ceiling. In addition, Edgar Wood’s friend, Staithes Group artist Frederick Jackson, painted a frieze depicting a harvest scene interspersed with roses. It is the only one of of his friezes to have survived.
