Marked on Ordnance Survey map as St Edmund's. Small country house. Early -
mid C19. For James Flint. Well-coursed watershot rubble with sandstone
ashlar dressings, Westmorland slate roof. 2 storeys with attics, 3 bays,
with later rear service wing to left. Plinth with decorative cast-iron
grilles to below-floor cavities. Chamfered rusticated quoins. Central 4-
panel door below radial fanlight in recessed architrave within round-arched
surround with Doric pilaster capitals and console keystone, and in front a
portico with unfluted Corinthian columns carrying a frieze with dentilled
cornice and blocking course. In first and third bays of ground floor,
French windows in architraves with cornices supported on consoles. First-
floor windows: 18-pane sashes within eared architraves with small egg-and-
dart friezes and cornices. Modillion cornice. Hipped roof. Corniced
ashlar end stacks. Rear: semicircular 2-storey staircase projection with
round-arched landing window with voussoirs and tripartite keystone and
curved glass; modillion cornice. Left and right returns: 1 bay of matching
windows to rear rooms. Interior: barrel-vaulted cellar below staircase.
Entrance hall has dentilled cornice and consoles with acanthus. The front
rooms on both floors have cast-iron grates in marble fireplaces; reeded-
panel doors and window-shutters, with acanthus motifs in the corner of the
doorcases; and high-quality cornices with a different motif in each room,
including pomegranate-and-grape motif in first-floor bedroom. First-floor
saloon also has Adam-style ceiling and plaster wall panel with concave
corners. Cantilevered stone geometrical staircase with cast-iron balusters
with acanthus leaves; modillion-and-rosette cornice and central acanthus
ceiling motif. Round-arched opening from staircase to landing with
Corinthian capitals to the pilasters, and guilloche-with-rosettes to the
soffit. Semicircular niche on inner landing. A double-curving staircase
rises from first-floor to attic. The house was owned, and probably built,
by James Flint, an ironfounder in Flint's Yard off Frenchgate in Richmond.
The house is of very high craftsmanship both inside and out, to an
exceptional degree for this area and date. "Mr James Flint, of Richmond,
has recently erected a neat commodious residence here, on the banks of the
Swale" (Whellan, History and Topography of the City of York and the North
Riding of Yorkshire (1871), vol ii, p480.)
