- II

Town House, now a hotel. 1776, built for John Daniell. Ham Stone ashlar, with
Welsh slated hipped roof behind parapets. 2-storey South East facade, set wall
back from the road, of 5 bays; with a central Ionic porch with complete
entablature and pediment, the attached columns merging into pilasters: three
steps up to pair of 3-fielded panel doors; windows at both levels of 12-pane
sashes in plain openings. The quoins are unmarked, but there is a plinth, first
floor band course and a dentilled cornice below a plain parapet. The return
elevations match: the South West side has 2-blind first floor windows; one
ground floor window converted to french windows and another blocked (A early C20
2-storey extension to the West corner of little interest). The North East side,
5-bays, has 2-blind first floor windows, and a doorway centrally to ground floor
with architrave and entablature terminating in a shallow flat hood - opening
partly blocked and a window fitted; the window in bay 5 has been narrowed. John
Daniel was a banker; the property originally known as Hendford House. Successor
owners include John Greenham, Portreeve and Town Commissioner, and his son
Frederick, Mayor of Yeovil 1856.
