4/11 Garthorpe Hall
(formerly listed as The
1.3.67 Hall, Garthorpe Parish)


House. c1680 with later alterations and rear additions. Renovations of
c1980. Red brick, partly in English bond; colour-washed, partly-rendered to
gable ends. Pantile roof. Plan: 3-rooms with lobby entry to left of
centre, and central rear stair turret flanked by later outshuts. 2 storeys
with attic, 7 bays, with 4 first-floor windows (3 blocked). Deep plinth
capped with ovolo and cavetto moulded bricks. Entrance bay breaks forward,
with wide 6-fielded-panel door beneath 5-pane overlight in damaged early C20
pilastered doorcase beneath partly-restored original floating pediment with
ovolo, cavetto and cyma recta moulded bricks. Three C18 12-pane sashes to
left, 2 similar 12-pane sashes and two C19 lengthened 4-pane sashes to
right, all in flush wood surrounds beneath flat arches. First floor: two
12-pane sashes to left, 2 similar sashes and 2 blocked windows to right.
Corbelled cornice of cavetto-moulded bricks. Ridge stack, cross-shaped on
plan. Right return has single C19 4-pane sashes to ground and first floors.
12-pane sliding sash to attic of left return. Rear has irregular
fenestration with C20 casements and sliding sashes, cogged brick eaves
cornice to main range. Interior. Ground-floor left room has reused
chamfered spine beam with tongue stops; inglenook fireplace with chamfered
Tudor-arched brick opening beneath timber bressumer, containing salt
cupboard with panelled door. Boxed-in spine beams and C19 fire surrounds to
other ground-floor rooms. Very fine mid-late C17 open-well, closed-string
staircase with panelled risers, bulbous vase-on-ball balusters, wide
corniced handrail, panelled newel-posts with ball finials and pendant drops,
large carved acanthus-scroll bracket to foot-newel, carved string with
moulded bands and pulvinated frieze with bay-leaf moulding. 3-panel doors
with bolection mouldings throughout, most with H-L hinges. Brick barrel-
vaulted cellar beneath outshut to west of stair turret. 6-bay collared
rafter roof with staggered butt purlins. Blocked original 2-light attic
window to right gable with plain oak mullion. Blocked first-floor windows
to rear of main range are visible in the west outshut. The stair turret
appears to be a later addition and built to accommodate the staircase; the
grandeur of the staircase itself, and the fact that some features of its
lower section are obscured, suggests it may have been brought from
elsewhere. Stands beside former south bank of Old River Don, on site of
earlier hall, the foundations of which have been revealed by excavation in
the garden. Photographs in NMR.
