Prospect House and its neighbours. Kipling's uncle Edward Burne-Jones's home in Rottingdean, as it is today

Though the left-hand building is now called "Prospect Cottage," it is the house that Burne-Jones originally acquired in 1880. Note the blue plaque [close-up] beside the door. In 1889, Burne-Jones also acquired the cottage next door, knocking the two together to make North End House. His studio was in what is now the pink part, behind the row of windows on the first floor (See Lycett 403).
