Listing Text

10/114 Clatford Hall
House. Later C16, early and mid C19. Sarsen with limestone
dressings, refaced in Bath stone in early-mid C19. Slate roof.
Two storeys and attics. North front 3-storeys of 9 window bays,
entrance within Doric portico in fourth bay, and large 6-panelled
door. Twelve-paned sashes with concealed boxes, some C20
restorations, and 9-pane blind sashes to attic storey. Blind
windows in sixth and eighth bays. Rear elevation with two and
central gabled bays, with 2-light hollow moulded stone windows with
label mouldings, some replaced with later windows, and mid C18
bolection moulded doorcase with broken pediment, and narrow
rusticated sides. To right of door, hollow string moulding,
carried round projecting east wing, probably early C17 work. Rear
wing also at west end, 2 bays, 2-storey mid C19, of diaper
brickwork and slated roof. Central 4-panelled door with overlight
and 3-light segmental headed windows.
Interior: Central bays have large stone stack with stone moulded
fireplace to ground floor, and ballflower in each spandrel.
Internal timber framed partition forming screen to cross passage,
clad in C19 panelling. Stone fireplace reset to east drawing room.
Moulded oak doorcase on first floor to upper parlour, fully
panelled, with some original scumbled graining, restored in the
rest of the room. Roof with windbraces to purlins, and east wing
of four bays, also windbraced. The house probably occupies the
site of a cell of the alien priory of St Victoire en Caux. The
house was probably erected by a cadet branch of the Goddard family
who acquired the manor in 1562. The extension may be the 'new
dwelling house' of 1689.
