TM 15 NW
5/195 Landguard House (formerly
- listed as The Auberies)
House, C16 in 2 stages: an early C16 cross-wing retained after rebuilding of
main range in later C16; remodelling in the Gothic manner, it is believed in
1885. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Concrete
plaintiled roof with C19 crested ridge tiles, and barge-boards with cusped
soffits and spike finials. One small-pane casement dormer, similarly
embellished. Axial and gable chimneys of late C19 red brick; twin square
shafts, diagonally-set. Late C19 2-light small-pane casements with plaster
hoodmoulds. 2-panelled glazed C19 entrance door with C20 gabled porch. Good
early C16 framing in the cross-wing, which was probably of parlour function:
close-studding and a 4-centred arched doorway. A large rear range was added
in early C19 forming a double-pile plan: painted brick with corner pilasters,
slated roof, small-pane sashes.
