3/2 Redenham House

20.12.60 II*

Country mansion in a parkland setting. Early C19. Stone walls to the 3 main
facades, brick and render, with hipped slate roofing. A classical design of
plain Greek style; square plan with a wing at the north side. Symmetrical
south elevation, of Bath stone, of 2 storeys, 2.3.2. windows: parapet with
moulded coping, with pineapple vases marking the corners and the ends of the
slightly-projecting centrepiece: moulded cornice, moulded cell band to the
1st floor plinth. Sashes in reveals, the lower windows reaching to floor level.
The symmetrical west (entrance) elevation, of 2 storeys and attic, 2.1.2. windows,
has similar detail, with a slightly-projecting centrepiece. 2 flat-roofed
dormers behind the parapet. Sashes, with normal cill levels to the ground-floor.
There is an Ionic porch of 2 coupled columns, 2 palasters, and ½-glazed wide
opening, containing double doors. The Order has simplified details in Greek
style and there is a blocking course. The east elevation has 5 windows,
symmetrical except for 1 ground-floor window being centred between 2 upper
windows at the south side, again with similar details. The north elevation
(of brickwork) is symmetrical, of 2 storeys and attic, with plain walls except
for a large round-headed staircase window in the middle of the recessed centre:
the west side is masked by the (north) wing, and the ground-floor is masked by a
C20 service block, roofed by a balustraded terrace. The wing is of 2 storeys
above a basement, which has access to a yard on the west side: the roof ridge is
below cornice level and there are rendered walls, regular fenestration with
sashes, and garage entrances in the basement. Inside the house retains its
original palatial appearance, with entrance hall, large staircase hall, and
main rooms with plasterwork, doorcases and fireplaces.
