6/3 Shedfield House

Country house. Of many phases, being extended from time to time: originally a
C16 lobby entrance house, extended c1700 at the south end, with further south
extension and internal changes of c1820, many-gabled wings of the mid C19 attached
to the long west side, and a large entrance unit added 1902; the changes of front
from east to west occurred, following the removal before 1840 of the roadway near
to the house to a line west of the house (at a greater distance). The east wall
of the oldest part is cement rendered, with cambered openings: the east wall of the
main part is of brickwork in English bond with some blue headers, the rubbed flat
arches partly cut away by the arched openings (c1820) of the slightly-widened
windows, 1st floor band (mostly cut away): the south end has colourwashed brickwork
of Flemish Garden Wall bond: the west walls are of brickwork in English bond, 1st
floor band, hoodmoulds to the window openings (except for the work of 1902). Tiled
roof, the main part (east side) with a modillion cornice and flat-roofed dormers,
brick dentil eaves at the south side, of three different levels, ending as hips;
the west elevation is a series of gables with bargeboards (some with scalloped
ornament). The oldest part is a rectangular block, with a central massive fire-
place, having chamfered bressumer of Tudor form, with a plinth to the west wall
(now exposed within): the main (c1700) block extends from its south end and
contains a fine Cl7 dog-leg staircase: the southernmost part is a large single-
storeyed room with half-hexagonal end: on the continuous east elevation these
parts show as one storey, two storeys and attic and a lower two storeys and attic,
1.5.3 windows. Sashes, a few casements, former doorway filled. The west elevation
comprises six gabled projections, of varied span, steepness, and front line, of
two storeys (with attics to the 2nd and 6th bays), windows. A
mixture of Victorian sashes (triple to the narrow 3rd recessed bay) and casements:
the south side bay (1902) contains the entrance, with a wide canopy of four curved
brackets, with a patterned lead rail along the top, small hexagonal windows on
either side of the plain wide doorway, the door itself faced with lead, having
raised ornament. Inside, the building contains many features (which are disconnected),
including plain panelling of several rooms, in one case decorated with fragments
of carving from a medieval wood screen, a Georgian cupboard with curving shelf
fronts, a glass chandelier of Regency style, fireplaces of the early C19 and 1902,
a panelled entrance hall (1902) with a plaster frieze decorated with inset
Portuguese plates and blue and white (Delft) tiles.
