5/64 Kelsale Manor
listed as Manor
Farmhouse. Early C16 (or possibly earlier) core, early C18
facades. A single central range with 2 long flanking wings set
forward. Timber framed and plastered, plaster cove eaves
cornice, plaintiled roof with pantiles to rear of central range.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 5-bay centre range, cross windows with
square leaded panes, the central first floor window semi-circular
headed; doorway with Gibbs surround with triangular pediment
over; C20 paired 3-panel doors, the upper panel of each door
glazed, raised and fielded lower panels; central internal stack.
One 3-light ovolo-moulded mullion window to rear. The inside
face of the right hand wing has a similar doorway but without the
pediment; the gable end of this wing has a good C18 3-light
ground floor splayed bay with sash windows, engaged columns to
the angles, frieze and modillion cornice with a pediment over the
centre window. The outer (south) facade of this wing has a range
of sash windows in flush frames with heavy glazing bars. This
wing was originally jettied: when cased in C18 a hollow ground
floor cavity was left allowing a carved corner post to be seen
through a panel in a window reveal. Interior with good early-mid
C18 staircase with 2 designs of twisted baluster per tread,
moulded handrail with scrolled ends, fluted newel posts; some
small remains of carved woodwork in right hand wing.
