TM 25 SE
(North side)
9/119 Pettistree Lodge

House, now divided into two dwellings. C16 in part. Heavily altered and
added to in the early/mid C19 and in the 1920s and 1940s. Timber framed
with colourwashed render and brick with colourwashed render with a slate
roof. Two and 2 1/2 storeys. Entrance front: projecting wing with hipped
roof at right built in the 1920s. This is of 2 storeys and has to its
hipped end a band at the level of the first floor sills and to the ground
floor a central sash window of 4 x 4 panes with lateral windows of 2 x 4
panes. Similar window to the first floor. The left hand flank of this
wing has a tripartite window to the ground floor with central French
windows and lateral lights with an overlight and two sash windows of 3 x 4
panes to the centre and left. The range at left of this and recessed is
the C19 refacing of the C16 house. This is of 5 bays, near-symmetrically
disposed and 2 1/2 storeys. At either side of the central 3 bays are giant
Ionic pilasters rising the full height of the front. Before the ground
floor of these 3 central bays is a flat-roofed porch supported at either
end by paired Tuscan pillars. Behind this is a central tripartite window
with central sash of 4 x 4 panes and lateral sashes of 1 x 4 panes. To
either side are arched niches, that at left having a circular window. The
right hand bay has a tripartite window, similar to that seen at the centre.
The first floor has three central sashes of 3 x 4 panes and the lateral
bays have sashes of 4 x 4 panes. The five attic windows are all of 5 x 2
panes. The right hand side of the house has a slightly lower projecting
gabled wing of the 1940s which connects to a garage block. Left hand gable
end: C20 outshut to ground floor level. The gable has a roof of shallow
pitch at right and steep pitch at left. Rear: four gabled projecting wings
with a long outshut to the ground floor at left which has a pitched lead
roof, which is hipped at left with a tripartite ground floor window. To
right of this are double doors and a sash window at right again of 3 x 3
panes. The first floor has two further casement windows to the right hand
gable with a 2-light.attic window above. The gable at left of this has two
2-light casements. Chimney stack at left of this. The two gables beyond
this have C20 2-light and single-light windows to the ground and first
floors with decorative bargeboards and a C20 canted bay window to the
ground floor at right.
Interior: The dining room of the southern dwelling has a C16 chamfered
ceiling beam with stepped lamb's tongue end stops at one end and lengthy
plain timber beyond this, as if once jettied (or possibly a re-used
timber). The drawing room to this portion has a mid-C19 moulded ceiling
and wall panels with egg-and-dart surround, and a neo-classical
chimneypiece of similar date, with swags, patterae and Corinthian columns
at either side. The roof space reveals a C17 roof which has had a further
roof of shallower pitch built above it to give the entrance front a more
classical outline.
