Philip Larkin lived here 1974-85, but wrote very little in that time.
Although it was announced last year that Philip Larkin's house was
to be listed it wasn't, but the house in Pearson
park, owned by Hull University, where he had a top floor flat and
wrote many of his works, was listed.
Just along the road....
and another fine building
West Garth (1910), by Wellsted, Dossor and Wellsted. Almost certainly designed
by John Malcolm Dossor (1872-1940)
who later became Lord Mayor of Hull. It has a 'butterfly' design,
with wings at 45 degrees leading off from the
central panelled entrance hall. The groundfloor room closest to camera was
the billiard room, with a full-size table.
At the rear the wings enclosed a loggia, which was south-facing and acted
as a sun trap, where we took afternoon
tea when staying here, which you can see in this picture I took there in
The building also had a fine library and five large bedrooms.
When sold for £620,000 on September 1, 2017 it
was Hull's most expensive house sale for the year, considerably more than
the second most expensive (also
in Newland Park, sold for £450,000.
