3/4 Clifton Hall
Small country house. Early C18. Perhaps by Francis Smith of Warwick,
for Sir Charles Pye. Red brick with some ashlar dressings and rusticated
ashlar quoins of unequal length; hipped slate roof; brick panelled
stacks. The southernmost of a pair of monumental wings flanking a
courtyard [the other wing is the former coach house block (q.v.)];
the intention may have been to link the two buildings with a principal
range to the east, if so, the plan was never effected. North elevation:
2 storeys with moulded plinth and eaves cornice, reduced proportions
to the first floor, raised blind panels between first floor windows
and eaves. 7 bays, casements and glazing bar sashes with gauged brick
heads, raised keystones, stone sills and aprons; the ground floor windows
have wooden cross frames and retain some glass with lead curves. Central
doorway with moulded and cased architrave, swan neck pediment on console
brackets, containing the Pye coat of arms. West elevation: 2 storeys
with moulded plinth and eaves cornice, reduced proportion to the first
floor, raised blind panels between first floor windows and eaves.
5 bays, casements and glazing bar sashes with gauged brick heads, raised
keystones, stone sills and aprons. Central door with heavy moulded
architrave incorporating panelled pilasters, the head of the door was
obscured at the time of the resurvey (November 1985). Interior: early
C18 dog leg staircase with turned balusters. Clifton Hall was in a
derelict and dangerous condition at the time of the resurvey. B.O.E.
