4/219 Copcut House
House. Mid-C18 with early C19 alterations and additions. Brick, partly
stuccoed, ashlar dressings, plain tiled roof, hipped to north wing; brick
ridge stack to north addition, left side and rear external brick stacks.
Three storeys and cellar with plinth and moulded eaves cornice. Originally
a C18 range on a north/south axis, the north end of which was rebuilt and
extended in the early C19 by a large, hipped roofed wing, taller in height;
a rear range was also constructed, parallel to the original, the gap
between infilled by a new staircase with stair light above. Front elevation:
two plus two bays; windows are glazing bar sashes with moulded architraves;
left two bays of earlier house have, at ground floor level, a tripartite
window with ashlar surround of pilasters and entablature with modillion
cornice; to the left of this, the main entrance has a projecting porch with
clasping pilasters, entablature with modillion cornice and side walls with
round-arched recesses and dropped keyblocks; door has six raised and fielded
panels, a transom light with two glazing bars and is flanked by moulded
wood pilasters. The two bays of the large C19 addition have ground floor
windows with similar ashlar detailing. Interior remains little altered since
C19 work carried out; at rear left is the C19 kitchen with two bread ovens,
boiler etc and the dairy is still intact. The cellar is set at a diagonal
across the full width of the house, probably indicating the original layout.
