ST 89 SW
6/114 Lasborough Park
(formerly listed in Westonbirt
with Lasborough parish)

Small country house. 1794 by James Wyatt for Edmund Estcourt,
altered and enlarged during C19, possibly by Holford family who
may have lived here during the construction of Westonbirt House
(q.v., see Westonbirt with Lasborough parish). Coursed and
dressed stone on chamfered plinth with hipped slate roof and
parapet, and stone stacks. Tudor Gothic. Main range a
symmetrical design of 2 storeys with central 3-storey canted bay
with embattled parapet above string course, and 4 square corner
towers, embattled above corbel table, with single window bay
between towers and central feature. Windows mostly large ovolo-
moulded 2-light stone mullions, with transoms to ground floor.
Two corner towers on garden side have half-glazed doors to outside.
Large U-shape C19 rear additions including polygonal corner porch
on east side, in similar style. Interior has simple classical
plaster friezes probably by Wyatt, cantilevered stone stair into
south west tower, with iron balustrade. Marble fireplace in
drawing room. Wyatt's original plans, not executed to exactly the
same design, hang in the library on north east corner.
