Listing Text

4/1 Riversdown
House, used as a school. C14 timber framed hall with C17 timber framed internal
additions and fireplaces, early C19 cladding, and restoration with many features
of c.1900. Brick walls of Flemish Garden Wall bond, some cambered openings, one
large stepped buttress on the east elevation. Tile roof, hipped at the north end,
extending to a low eaves on the west side, with narrow hipped dormers at two levels,
hipped and half-hipped minor extensions. The general form of the large medieval hall
is seen externally, above walls of one, two and three storeys, forming irregular
facades as minor projections to the main block, irregular fenestration. Casements,
mostly small: the south side has a narrow two-storeyed splayed bay, tile-hung
between the windows, with a steep hipped slate roof. Gabled porch. The low wings
and projecting features represent an interesting Art Nouveau exterior.
