SP/458 Summersdale Farmhouse
Farmhouse, now part of Graylingwell Hospital, probably early C18. Red brick and
tile roofs, with some flint walling to rear and old render to the front. Two
storeys and six irregular bays. Plinth and wooden modillion cornice. Sash windows
with glazing bars, apparently modern replacements. The first two bays of the ground
floor are occupied by a large rectangular bay window, probably C20, and the third
bay by a plastered porch with panelled pilasters and a recent roof. Dormers over
the first and third and sixth bays and gable stacks. Gable walls have storey bands.
At rear a hipped roof stair tower with blocked round-headed window has been flanked
by later additions, though there was an original outshut under a catslide roof on
the north side. Large Victorian cross-wing to the south and later additions outside
that. Inside, there is an early C19 plain stair. The room to the right of the
entrance hall has an early C18 cornice carried round the cross beam. Upstairs there
is one 8-panelled small-framed door which may be original. The roof has oak members
and is of butt-purlin type. The oak pegs to the tiles survive at least in part.
