7/1 Ashfield Lodge
Lodge dwelling, of Tudor style. 1870, by W E Nesfield. Ground-floor brick
walls of English bond (some lowest parts of Flemish bond), high plinth (double
in parts): two tall chimneys with flues formed as octagons knitted into groups,
with each face having a thin projecting rib, the multi-ribbed pattern being
stopped by a horizontal moulding, above which the head of the shaft is widened:
the smaller stack has a gabled head to its plain lower part, which contains at
a high point a terra-cotta ornament, with W.C.T (William Temple) and 1870:
the longer stack has the rib pattern descending into a wider gable, with two
narrow windows, being stopped by a tiled weathering above a stepped brick cornice,
the lower wall having a large terra-cotta cartouche. The upper floor is timber-
framed, with close studding filled with rendered panels containing incised
ornament or pargetting, the main corners having diagonal struts, with curved
brackets supporting the bargeboards patterned with circular ornament (sun-
flowers), and filled with scalloped tiling above plain-tile bell casts. L-
shaped building of two storeys: the east side is dominated by the centrally-
placed larger stack: the south front has an east side gable (timber-framed to
ground-floor all level), enriched with curved panels at the top, on either side
of an oriel, the ground-floor section containing a mullion and transom window
and the open porch. The windows of various sizes are unified by the use of
standard details of oak frames, and very small panes of glass leaded to form
mullioned windows of 2, 3 and 5 lights, each of 6 x 8 panes, the large
transomed window having 6 x 6 above 6 x 7 panes. Oak door within the recessed
entrance. A small single-storeyed wing is masked by a high wall.
