2/75 Saddington Hall and Garden
(Previously listed as

House. Principal block of early C19, the rear wings have a C17 core which is
dated 1674 though they are altered. Oldest sections are of coursed and
squared ironstone, the early C19 block is rendered over brick on a ashlar
plinth. There is a linking section of circa 1900 of brick. Roof is largely
Welsh slate though some of the oldest section has Swithland slate. Main range
is 2 storied, five bays, each of the lower openings set in a recess with
shallow segmental head. Central doorway with leaded lights alongside it, and
shallow radial fan. Windows are 16-light sashes with fine astragals. Two
sill bands, the lowest is moulded. Overhanging eaves. Axial stacks. Wing to
rear right apparently C17 to C18. Coursed and squared ironstone raised with
brick and render and refenestrated with paired and triple sashes with thick
transoms and moulded stone hood moulds in each of its three bays. Central
window was apparently formerly a doorway. Three hipped gabled dormers above.
Conservatory beyond against later brick wall, a curved structure with many
tiny panes. At right angles to this wing and behind it another is dated 1674,
also of ironstone, and two storied but re-roofed. the doorway is now in an
outshut beside the gable wall but perhaps resited since it has a fine
shouldered stone architrave and hood mould. three light casement with transom
to groundfloor, two lights above and a brick oculus in gable apex beneath the
date stone. In side elevation of this wing is a C19 doorway and casement
windows, but there is one early upper window now blocked with chamfered stone
architrave beneath brick arched head. Quoins and moulded kneelers to gable.
Gable and axial stacks. Brick garden wall is attached to the house and
returns along the street front.
