4/130 The Greenway Hotel



Large house now used as a hotel, formerly known as Shurdington
House/Manor. Built early C17 by the Lawrence family, altered and
extended 1835 and 1865, restored and extended c1910 for Archdeacon
Sinclair by Ernest Newton. Pebble-dashed with exposed squared and
dressed stone quoins; stone slate roof with ashlar stacks. The
C17 house was 'H'-shaped in plan; C19 flat-roofed extension to the
former library on the south. Newton added projecting wings in the
same style as the main body to the east front accentuating the 'H'-
shaped plan and linked the main house to another C17 building to
the north. C17 ranges: 2 storeys and attic with cellar under the
principal range; C19 linking range 1½ storeys. Symmetrical
1:1:2:1:1 windowed entrance front main body. Gables project
forwards left and right with rectangular C19 three-light bay
windows to the ground floor; C19 four-light ovolo-moulded stone-
mullioned casements with transom above; 3-light ovolo-moulded
stone-mullioned casements with stopped hoods to each gable.
Central gable with single bays with 'gabled' parapets projecting
forwards slightly either side; wood-mullioned cross windows to the
ground floor; C19 ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned windows to the
first floor. Central C19 flat-roofed porch in front of the
central gable. Continuous dripmoulds over the ground and first
floor windows. Triple-gabled southern elevation lit by stone-
mullioned cross windows with 2-light stone-mullioned casements to
the gables. Early C20 triple-gabled eastern elevation with paired
stone-mullioned cross windows with king mullions to the ground
floor; 3-light casements with hoods to the gables. Plank door
within C19 moulded Tudor-arched surround to the central gable now
acting as the entrance to a C20 conservatory between the two
projecting gables. Most windows to main body have leaded panes.
Linking range on the north of the main body in similar style with
stone-mullioned casements. Twin-gabled west front to the formerly
separate C17 building which is lit by single-light and 2-light
stone-mullioned casements with stopped hoods; one 4-light ovolo-
moulded stone-mullioned casement. Early-leaded panes to the
casements lighting the gables. Lead rainwater goods with
rainwater heads dated and initialled 'W.L. 1816', some early
rainwater heads with oak leaf, 4-petal flower and lozenge motifs to
the subsidiary C17 building. Axial and lateral composite stacks
with moulded cappings. Saddleback coping and pointed finials,
some now lost to the main body. Stepped coping and roll-cross
saddles to the subsidiary C17 building. Octagonal standing for
late C18 cupola, removed c1970, behind the central gable on the
east. The cupola replaced a C17 square roof-top study.
Interior: mid C18 stone fireplace in the entrance hall with a
lugged surround with a gadrooned inner margin, swan-necked
'pediment' with foliage and grapes at the centre; moulded mantel
shelf; stone panels decorated with fruit and scallop shell motifs
below a broken triangular pediment. C18 style round-headed
archways with fluted pilasters. Early C20 staircase with turned
balusters and ball finials; shell-headed shelved alcove on quarter
landing. Early C20 panelling incorporating reused C17 carved
panels at the top within the former Drawing Room. Early C20
Tudor-arched fireplace with carved spandrels and C17 carved oak
overmantel with 3 round-headed alcoves with gadrooned arches and
Ionic capitals; carnation-like flowers on the columns, further
decoration in the form of lions' heads, grotesque human heads
and S-curve dragons.
