5/57 Froyle Place
Mansion. Of medieval origin, but mainly an E-plan Jacobean (early C17) house,
with late Georgian alterations of 1816, and Victorian (1865) extensions and
interior. Chalkstone walls, and tiled roof. The front (north-west) is
symmetrical, of 2 storeys and attic, 7 windows. There are three gables with
finials and Gothic coping, linked by a parapet (all mid C19), a plain cornice
and moulded plinth; the main walling is of small squared chalkstone, in coursed
ashlar (perhaps a re-fronting), and the openings have plain flush architraves
(early C19) and cills in a fine white stone. Sashes in reveals; 3-light
casements in chamfered stone surrounds in the gables. The stone doorcase, also
a fine white stone, has a cornice, broken above scroll brackets, a frieze with
circular ornaments, and architrave, enclosing simple double doors of 3 panels
(2 top lit). The rear elevation has gables flanking the recessed centre, now
partly filled with a mid C19 design of 1.3.1. windows (the middle being a 2-
storeyed bay). The north-east elevation also follows the general treatment, with
3 more-closely spaced gables, and 3 windows (each having a stone frame to 3 lights)
with sashes. Extending from the main block to the south-west is a complex
service wing of 4 and 2 storeys, of Jacobean style; some is c1800 and much of the
mid C19. Inside, there are panelled rooms and decorative ceilings in Jacobean style
of the mid C19; the entrance hall is lined with C17 oak panelling.
