CHESWARDINE C.P. CHESWARDINE
12/6 Nos 1 and 2, The Old
House, now divided. Mid-C18, possibly with earlier core and with late
C19 additions. Red brick with red sandstone ashlar dressings; plain tile
roof. H-plan with projecting gabled cross wings; C19 additions at rear of
right-hand cross wing (see straight joint). 2 storeys and attic. Chamfered
stone plinth. Pair of star-shaped brick ridge stacks off-centre to left and
right, external brick end stack at rear of left-hand wing and 2 brick stacks
to right-hand wing. 1:3:1 bays. Late C20 cross windows with stone cills
and gauged brick heads with flush keystones. Right-hand cross wing with
blind windows. Small-paned half-glazed door in second bay from left with
surround consisting of lugged architrave, fluted frieze and moulded cornice.
C19 external steps with wooden balustrade and hipped-roofed porch. Cross
wings with 3-bay return fronts. Right-hand return front with C19 full-
height half-octagonal bay. Interior not inspected. The plan suggests
that this is a rebuilding of an earlier house. The rebuilding was
probably carried out in more than one phase (see differences in brick bond
and other details in facade). The ground-gloor window in the left-hand cross
wing has probably been altered (see evidence of wider opening). The gable
of the wing has also been rebuilt.
