3/61 Frieston Hall

House, C17 with early C19 additions and front. Coursed limestone rubble
with ashlar dressings, stucco main block, raised stone coped gables with
ball finials at base and brick gable stacks, slate roof. Main block
has 5 bay two storey front with moulded parapet and stone coped pediment
over surmounted by a ball finial and containing a blank pointed headed
window opening. Central C19 panelled door under 4-centred arch
contained in a coursed limestone rubble porch with ashlar quoins
surmounted by a moulded parapet. The door is flanked by two pairs of
glazing bar sash windows with shaped stucco lintels. The 3 first floor
windows are pointed sashes, with elegant glazing bars in the Gothic
taste. To the right is a two bay 2 storey wing with glazing bar sashes,
and to the right a small wing of open bay with flanking pilasters,
a Gothick traceried pointed window on the ground floor and an empty

C17 round backed fireplace with a hacked back moulded 4 centred arch.
