6/2 Breamore House
25.2.58 (Formerly listed as
GV Breamore House with Stabling)


Mansion. 1583, with minor C18 changes: following a fire of 1856, there
was considerable restoration, in style. Walls of brickwork in English
bond with stone dressings; plinth, flush quoins, mullion and transom
windows beneath hood moulds, weathered bands to 1st and 2nd floors, coved
eaves and gables. Tile roof, Tudor stacks with diagonal flues on
rectangular bases. Large L-shaped block, with symmetrical E-shaped east
front, of two storeys and attic, windows (five gables).
Windows of six and eight lights (mostly of the restoration date). C18
doorcase, with cornice on console brackets, pulvinated frieze, eared
architraves; this is approached by an entrance raised on six steps (at
each side) with a pierced balustrade capped by two urns. Within the
angle, each facade has a central projecting unit, and at each outer
corner there is a staircase turret; the forecourt has an outer brick wall
with gateway piers. The other outer (north-east) range is less regular,
without projections, four gables, attached stacks, and single-storeyed
wings. A paved area to the east front has a stone balustrade with
diaper piercings.
