TF 16 NE
6/40 Halstead Hall
G.V. I
Small country house. C16 with restorations of 1852, 1922 and
1966. Red brick in English bond with ashlar dressings, plain
tiled roofs, raised stone coped gables with kneelers and finials
and one brick coped gable. C19 ridge stack with paired diamond
shafts and a similar stack but with 3 shafts. Plan now consits
of a main range with a lower unit to the right, but was probably
originally L shaped round the courtyard. 2 storey with garret 6
bay front having moulded plinth and stone string course, ashlar
quoins to left hand side and moulded stone eaves course. Central
C20 door with moulded surround, flat head and hood, with to
either side 2 sets of 3 light windows having chamfered mullions
and transoms, 4 centred arched lights, concave chamfered
surrounds, flat heads with labels. The 3 lights on the extreme
right only retain their original heads, the rest being C19
replacements. Above the windows are 4 centred brick relieving
arches. To the left is a C20 wooden door set in a C16 4 centred
arched surround having moulded reveals, blank shields to the
spandrels contained in circles and a moulded flat hood. To first
floor are 2 further sets of paired windows, each with 3 lights,
the masonry of which is predominantly C16 with some C19 repair
and match those on the ground floor. To the left is a small
fixed light with round arched head, moulded square surround and
label. A disturbance in the brickwork above suggests the former
presence of an opening at this point. To the right is a single
storey with attic, 3 bay block, the base and part of the front
wall of which are C16, but extensive C19 and C20 remodelling has
transformed it into a service range. Evidence in the right hand
gable of the main block shows that this lower part was originally
of full height with the rest. To ground floor is a C19 gabled
porch with to left 2 C20 3 light casement windows. To first
floor a small fixed light and a 2 light through eaves dormer,
beyond again to the right is a lower unit with C19 ornamental
brick stack. At the rear is a further 3 light window with 4
centred head, removed from the front in 1966, to left is a single
C20 window with stone surround and a 3 light C16 window with flat
head, hood mould and brick relieving arch over. To right is a
further C20 2 light stone window with hood mould. To first floor
is a C16 3 light window with 4 centred heads and hood mould. To
right is a C20 plain light in stone surround and a 3 light C20
copy of the C16 3 light window. Interior retains a moulded stone
doorway with 4 centred head, 2 roll mouldings separated by a
concave moulding and a C17 plank and muntin door not in its
original position. In the living room is a fireplace surround in
stone, with 4 centred flattened arch and decorative carving in
the spandrels. The moulding is stopped with a bulbous foot.
This surround was originally on the first floor. On the first
floor are 3 smaller narrower stone arches matching that on the
ground floor. A later corridor has been inserted. The C17 roof
is a staggered butt purlin with braced collars. The house stands
in a slightly elevated position and is surrounded by an earlier
