Miramonte Kingston
Summary: Miramonte was designed by architect Maxwell Fry in 'international modern' style, the house built in reinforced concrete faced with white plaster with a blue metal trim. Nikolaus Pevsner described it as 'a play of open and closed elements, of different geometric shapes and of judiciously contrasted window forms'. Adjacent to the road is a separate garage with flat above, a covered way leading to the L-shaped house. House and garden are linked by a projecting sun room with a covered balcony at the west end of the south front and curving walls. A tubular steel fence with wire mesh infill surrounds the garden in front of the garage.
