2/27 Coney Weston House

- II

House. Part early C17, part mid C18, with later extensions. Part timber-
framed and rendered, but mainly encased in red brick of circa 1870, with an
early C20 single-storey extension along the south side. The roofs are covered
with unusual angular roman tiles. One internal chimney-stack with sawtooth
shaft and oversailing top course. Mainly large-paned sash windows. Doorcase
with flat pediment, console brackets, and raised panels to jambs. 4-panelled
door with plain rectangular fanlight. The oldest part is a 2-cell range at
the north end of the house, aligned east-west: this probably formed the whole
of the original building. The internal chimney-stack, with back-to-back
hearths, heated the 2 rooms on the ground storey. On its west side, the
fireplace has a plastered arched surround, and is lined with antique blue-and-
white Delft tiles. Ovolo-moulded main beams, and one small 3-light ovolo-
moulded mullioned window, which formed part of a larger window, on the south
side; another similar window-outline visible in the plaster of the upper
storey. A small wing extends northwards at right-angles from this range. The
central section of the house contains a large entrance-hall, with a large and
very fine C18 stair, with moulded balusters and a sinuous handrail continued
to form a gallery on the upper landing. The south side contains a range of 3
Georgian rooms, linked by archways and extended southwards in the early C20.
These have good features: plaster cornices with egg-and-dart ornament, and
ornate fireplaces with eared architrave, pulvinated frieze and ball-and-reel
decoration. The room in the south-east angle is very high, with 2 pine main
beams, ovolo-moulded, a fireplace with eared architrave and festoon, and a
raised cast-iron hob grate. A number of 6-panelled doors.
