5/178 Mountains Lodge
Lodge to Mountains (q.v.). Probably 1865, contemporary with the house, and
probably designed by G. Somers Clarke. English bond brick with blue
diapering, the first floor tile-hung with bands of scalloped tiles; peg-tile
roof with ornamental ridge tiles; brick stack; Tudor style.
Plan: Sited inside the gate piers of Mountains and associated with a stable
yard (q.v.). The Lodge faces east, overlooking the drive to the house. 2
rooms wide, with a central entrance, probably facing a stair, with a rear
right service outshut, all the rooms apparently served from one rear lateral
Exterior: 2 storeys. Roof half-hipped at the right end, gabled at the left
end. Originally symmetrical 3-bay front elevation, the first floor jettied
out on curved brackets with a moulded jetty beam, the centre bay projecting
and gabled to the front on the first floor with an open porch below. The
gable, which is treated in imitation of timber-framing, has curly bargeboards
with pierced roundels. The porch has chamfered stopped posts, moulded caps, a
Tudor arched lintel and original tiling. Ground floor window right is
original, a deeply recessed 2-light casement with a brick mullion and stone
lintel. The left hand ground floor window has been replaced in the C20 by a
canted brick bay glazed with small-pane casements. One 1-light original
window in the centre bay, the rest of the first floor is blind. The left
(south) return has pierced bargeboards and a 2-light C19 casement. The rear
elevation has a lateral stack with 3 brick shafts with corbelled coping. The
service outshut is diapered with 4-pane C19 sashes with stone lintels. The
outshut appears to have been extended.
Interior: Not inspected but may retain original features of interest.
Low iron railings to the garden in front of the Lodge and a section of
diapered brick wall adjoining the south end are included in the listing.
A very nicely-detailed Tudor style lodge. Group value with the stable
buildings, gate piers and gate and Mountains.
