4/191 Yarlington House

Detached country house. Built 1782 for John Rogers, extended 1911. Cary stone roughly cut and squared, but with red
brick east and south facades having boulting stone dressings; hipped Welsh slate roof; brick chimney stacks with
moulded stone caps. Two storeys with attics; east elevation of 3 bays, of which the centre projects slightly and has a
gabled parapet. Plinth, band course, cornice and plain parapet with moulded coping; 12-pane sash window in
architraves, that to the centre first floor having ears and heels; lower outer bays have Venetian windows, and central
bay has doorway with Tuscan pilaster surround with full entablature under flat hood, flanked by 2 slim sash windows in
shell-head architraved panels, but these are C20 additions. South elevation of 9 bays to match, of which bays 5 to 9
are of C18, and bays 1 to 4 are of 1911; some minor variations of detail, including French door with anse-de-panier
arched head to lower bay 4. On west side a flat-roofed extension with parapet and ball finials to corners. North
elevation rather plain, and modified in the C20; main entrance now in this elevation. The interior of the house seems
little altered, and has 6- panel doors in panelled reveals, almost Regency in style; plain dadoes; a variety of ceiling
cove mouldings of C18; fine curved cantilevered wood staircase on north side: one good C18 fireplace in hall; the
remainder removed at some time, but now replaced with a variety of French C18 fireplaces, including one in marble and
one in scagliola. The C20 additions nicely detailed.
