3/43 Crownland Hall

House, on a large rectangular moated site. C17, in 2 closely-dated phases.
Part timber-framed, part red brick, with old plaintiles. 2 storeys and
attics; L-shaped form. The earlier range, aligned north-south, is timber-
framed and rendered with end chimney-stacks. Both stacks have 2 short
attached barrel shafts on a rectangular base, the stack on the north forming
part of a brick gable end which has 2 2-light original windows to the ground
and first floors, and one set centrally at the apex, all with hollow-chamfered
brick mullions, and all blocked. Along the east side, 4 flat-headed dormers
with lead cheeks and 3-light diamond-leaded casement windows; 3 12-paned sash
windows in cased frames to the first floor, one blank, and similar windows to
the ground floor; 2 half-glazed doors with flat bracketed pediments. Little
timbering exposed inside: ground-floor ceiling at the south end has exposed
joists set on edge; remainder boxed-in. Roof, partly exposed, in 9 bays:
windbraces, butt purlins, partly stepped. The slightly later main range,
aligned east-west, is in.colour-washed red brick, laid in English Bond. 3 12-
pane sash windows to the upper floor, one 16-pane and one 20-pane to the
ground floor, both with segmental arches to frames and surrounds; all windows
in deep reveals. A flat-roofed C19 brick porch and half-glazed inner door.
On the original rear wall, 2 matching external stacks, each with 3 high
attached octagonal shafts on bases decorated with 2 rows of diaper-patterned
brick. An early c19 2-storey brick extension with a shallow-pitched roof
running into the main roof slope forms a corridor along the south side, so
that the chimney-stacks are now internal. 3 12-pane sash windows to the upper
floor, 5 16-pane to the ground floor, all in deep reveals with segmental
arches. Doric portico with fluted columns; half-glazed door with 2 leaves,
now blocked. The interior of this range is largely early C19 in style:
entrance hall with open string stair, bracketed tread-ends, stick balusters,
wreathed handrail; 6-panelled doors, 2 with panelled architraves and linings;
panelled window-shutters; one raised cast-iron grate with Egyptian decoration;
ceiling-beams boxed in. Roof of attic in 7 bays: 2 rows of unstepped butt
purlins, cambered collars; assembly marks to principal rafters.
