1/41 Rushford Hall
14.7.55 listed as The
Lodge, Rushford
under General)

- II

Former farmhouse. Early C18, considerably enlarged in matching
style in early C20. Colour-wash and render over red brick, with
hipped roof of black glazed pantiles. 2 storeys and attics. The
original house was in 7 bays with string course and rusticated
and chamfered quoins. Modillion cornice and plastered parapet.
Small l-paned sash windows in flush frames with arched heads to
brick surrounds. Central entry with recessed door, panelled
sides, semi-circular traceried fanlight. A single-storey porch,
with flat roof and parapet to match the house, added in 1983. On
the ground storey of the main front panels of white brick have
been set between the windows, whether with decorative intent or
simply as a repair is not clear. A small 2-storey extension to
the west, now reduced to single storey, and a 5-bay extension on
the east, have virtually doubled the house in size. The interior
has a number of features introduced from elsewhere: panelling and
a fireplace surround in Jacobean style in the hall, a mid C17
dog-leg stair with carved finials and posts, and, in the new
extension, a quantity of early C16 panelling, apparently of
Continental origin.
