2/4 Bordean House


Mansion. Late C17, with late C19 changes, and substantial early C20 eastward
extension. Walls of squared malmstone with brick dressings (bold rusticated
quoins, other flush quoins, rubbed flat arches with stone keys), brick plinth, also
stone dressings to the later features. Hipped slate roof, wood modillion cornice.
The original H-block retains its symmetrical north-east front, but with added and
very ornamental features of the late C19 (with classical details in Bath stone), and
a tall centre projecting from the recessed middle part; now two storeys and attic, windows, with a single-storeyed unit (with balustrade above rendered
walls, but still slightly recessed) filling the space between wings and entrance.
Sashes; the semi-attic windows are coupled within stone frames, of pilasters,
cornice, and bell-shaped pediment: the 1st floor sashes are within original
openings: the ground-floor window to each wing is a massive splayed bay of four
sashes, with stone classical details below a balustrade. The centre has a (higher)
attic window similar to those in the wings, and there is a classical framework of
brick pilasters (rusticated to the ground-floor) enclosing a stone framed three-
sash 1st floor window above an Ionic doorcase. The plain west end has a massive
brick stack, the centre part having been rebuilt, with mullioned windows, in the
early C20 (following the removal of a more-westerly unit). The generally
symmetrical rear elevation is mostly comprised of late C19 alterations, but the
west side retains an original Venetian window. Interior: the main feature is the
staircase, lit by the Venetian window, with iron rails and stone steps of tradition-
al form, but other older details such as niches and a decorative plaster ceiling.
Besides the much altered original block, there is a larger early C20 east wing,
which follows the simpler style of the original elevations.
