SE 6055 NE NEW EARSWICK SYCAMORE AVENUE (south side) 9/60 Nos 22 and 24 with archway to left GV II Pair of semi-detached houses. 1914. By Parker and Unwin, for Joseph Rowntree Village Trust. Lobby-entry plan with living room and scullery side by side and coal shed and WC in outbuilding. Brick with French tile roof. 2 storeys, 2 first-floor windows with right bay breaking forward beneath gable. Half-glazed doors and standard "New Earswick" window panes throughout. Right cottage: 2-light casement with door beneath segmental arch to left. Left cottage: door beneath segmental arch with 2-light casement to right and single-light casement to left. Round arch to left conceals outbuilding with hipped roof. First floor: to right a 3-light casement; to left, a flat-topped 2-light casement half dormer. Stacks removed. The particular significance of New Earswick lies in its contribution to the development of low cost housing in Britain. Experience gained and practices introduced here were incorporated extensively into the Tudor Walters Report of 1918 which was instrumental in the passing of the Addison Act of 1919. Plans from New Earswick influenced the Government Manual on low cost housing which followed the Act.
