TF 47 SW
4/45 Wellvale House
(formerly listed
3.2.67 as Well Hall)

G.V. II*

Former small country house in park, now private school. Early
C17, sunstantially remodelled c.1730 for James Bateman, extended
late C18, for Francis Dashwood, partly gutted by fire 1845 and
rebuilt 1925 by Guy Elwes. Red brick in English and Flemish
bonds, ashlar dressings, plain tiled hipped roofs with lead
dressings, 4 ridge brick stacks. 2 storey plus attics,
originally 2:3:2, the centre bays advanced and pedimented, in
front of the left hand 2 bays which are in English bond and part
of the original house. An additional bay, in matching style was
added to the left c.1793. The right hand 2 bays were rebuilt in
1925. Plinth, first floor band, parapet with deeply moulded
ashlar cornice. Half glazed door with fan traceried overlight is
set in Doric porch with triglyph frieze and pediment, reached by
3 semi-circular ashlar steps. To left 4 glazing bar sashes, to
right 3 similar windows. To first floor 6 glazing bar sashes.
All windows have flat brick arches. In the pediment a cartouche
bearing the Bateman Arms. In the roof are 5 glazing bar dormers,
pedimented with lead cheeks. The side front of 3 bays was
rebuilt 1925. The rear elevation shows the advanced C17 wing, in
English bond; the sash windows have clearly been inserted.
Interior. Apart from the diamond set stone flagged floor the
entrance hall and stair date from 1925. The plaster vaulted
passage to the rear of the hall appears to be original along with
the ornate chimney piece in former drawing room, with pulvinated
garlanded frieze with oak leaves and ribbons. A similar smaller
chimney piece with eared surround can be found in the former
Principal Bedroom. Late C18 back stairs with turned balusters,
and dado panelling. The importance of Wellvale House lies in its
park setting and the careful landscape relationship between house
and church. Source: Country Life, 14 December, 1972.
