Fragment XXX. Concerning entrance lodges and cottages, pp. -187
FRAGMENT XXX. CONCERNING ENTRANCE LODGES AND COTTAGES. VARIOUS expedients have been suggested to mark the entrance to a place with importance. A Villa with a few acres, or a Park with an extensive domain, must now be at some distance from the high road, in compliance with the modern custom of placing the house in the centre of the grounds. In such situations the utility of an Entrance Lodge or Cottage is too evident to require discussing, but its character may be worth some consideration.
