                          I wonder if it was intended to be a church residence - a vicarage or rectory, for example?

                          I agree with Brooksey that it does resemble the Hobbies 237 Special, though it's smaller. I'm not aware of plans for the 237 being published in a smaller size, though Hobbies had published a half-size version of one of their earlier most popular designs, the 186 Special. The small version appeared in 1944, when the shortage of materials would have made constructing the larger size very difficult.

                          The 186 Special also had the curved timbering used in this house, so perhaps the maker had access to the 1944 plans? or just scaled down the plans for the 237 Special.

                          It is beautifully decorated - I love the delicate wallpapers and friezes.
