SK 22 NW
(east side)
3/70 Craythorne Hall
- (now includes
Craythorne Manor)
- II

Large house (now in 2 units). Mid-Cl9 with C20 alterations. Sandstone
ashlar (chisel draughted to porch) and dressings and raised quoins.
Hipped slate roof of low pitch and corniced eaves; brick side stacks.
Complex plan, roughly rectangular. Entrance front to south of 2 storeys
and 2 windows, raised band at first floor level and plinth; glazing
bar sashes; projecting wing to left of one window; slightly taller and
narrower projecting wing to right, Italianate, suggestive of a tower;
paired round-arched window, labelled on capitals; balustraded balcony
at first floor; centre recess with cast iron balustraded porch on frieze
and paired Tuscan columns running flush with the faces of adjoining wings;
2 small round-arch windows within porch flank central entrance with
architrave and part-glazed double doors. The appearance of the house
implies several dates, but the parts are very similar, presumably the
intention being to give the effect of an accretive development.
