4/7 Cleasby Hall

Manor house. Possibly C15, C16, C17, C18 and C19. Roughcast rubble,
pantile roof. Irregular plan of hall, originally open, probably added onto
earlier range to west, and with additions. 2 storeys, formerly 3 in older
parts to west and south. Windows all have C20 frames, most are in exposed
or hidden mullioned window surrounds. West front, formerly an internal
wall: C20 6-panel door with reset C16 moulded jambs and large rounded
corbels, carrying lintel, flanked by 16-pane sash windows. First floor
offset, the wall reducing in thickness, with two 12-pane unequally hung sash
windows. Above, to left, gable-end of hall range has 2-light double-
chamfered window with replaced mullion. South front with projecting side
wings: left wing, formerly with very large multi-light mullion-and-transom
window, now with 3-light chamfered mullion window on ground floor, 16-pane
sash window above and coped gable, external stack to right return. Centre
range, ground floor from left: paired sash windows with glazing bars; 16-
pane sash window. First floor: 3-light double-chamfered mullion window; 8-
pane sash window. Large central ridge stack. Right wing: 16-pane sash
windows on ground and first floors, 2-light double-chamfered mullion window
above in coped gable; on each floor of left return a blocked 2-light double-
chamfered mullion window. East front: left end blind, formerly with very
large external stack, removed below eaves; to its right, two 16-pane sash
windows on each floor, C20 six-panel door in ex situ rusticated quoined
surround below 9-pane unequally hung sash window, and a 16-pane sash window
on each floor. Stone slates at eaves. Ashlar coping. Interior: in south-
east room, very large C17 fireplace with chamfered jambs, and segmental arch
of even voussoirs with masons' marks and scar of a spit, the arch probably a
replacement; doors of 6 fielded panels and fielded-panel shutters. In east
wall of central hall, chamfered pointed-arched doorway, rebated for door
opening eastwards, and probably moved from similar position in present
(external) east wall, as fireplace in wall above has been damaged to
accommodate head of arch, and matching base stones survive in east wall. In
ground-floor south-west room, C16 or C17 Tudor-arched ashlar fireplace
brought down from second floor. In east side of present west wall, one
large rounded corbel surviving in situ, probably formerly on outside of
building further west. Although very much altered, this is one of the
oldest houses in the area.
