(Formerly listed as Glenthorne,
including gate posts)
House. 1697. Red brickwork in Flemish bond with blue headers, red dressings; plinth,
rubbed flat arches, 1st floor band, rusticated quoins, eared architrave to centre
with cut brick ornament to mouldings. Hipped tile roof, fully-moulded wood cornice.
A notable example of William and Mary style, with a symmetrical south front,
having a projecting centre, of two storeys, 2.1.2 windows. Sashes in exposed
frames. The classical doorcase is of fine cut brickwork, with pediment, dentilled
cornice, cut decoration to some of the mouldings, rubbed flat arch, the inner
framework being rendered and containing an arched opening with key, and double
(three panelled) doors. Within the porch is an arched entrance with a
decorative fanlight. The east elevation is plain, with the plinth, 1st floor band,
and moulded cornice continued. The rear (north) elevation is an unusual exposed
timber frame (of the same date) with painted brick infill: there are five
windows (of irregular spacing) with a middle tall staircase light with an arched
head. Sashes. The ground-floor contains outshots, mostly of the C20 with
glazing and flat roofs; the hipped roof continues from the other elevations, but
with a large plaster cornice of cyma form. The interior contains the original
staircase, some Georgian plaster work and some Victorian renovation (in matching
style). In front of the house, on each side of the entrance, there is a wrought-
iron forecourt rail, resting on a stone base.
