Villa, now headmistress's house to Huyton College. Mid C19, slightly
altered. Channelled stucco at ground floor, red brick in Flemish bond at
1st floor, slate roof. Approximately square plan. Eclectic style with
some classical features. Two storeys over cellars, 3 windows to both
principal facades (the east and south); with white-painted channelled
stucco carried round at ground floor finishing at a lst-floor sillband,
a plain frieze, and a prominent wooden modillioned cornice over the
principal elements of both these facades. The entrance front to the east
is asymmetrical, having a wide projected bay offset left of centre which
has a sashed window at ground floor flanked by coved niches with run-out
voussoirs, and a window of 3 narrow lights at 1st floor, the centre
light blind and the others sashed; a narrow bay set back to the left,
with 4 steps up to a round-headed doorway which has a pilastered
architrave and plain fanlight, and a narrow sashed wndow above; and a
wide 3rd bay to the right which has a tripartite sashed window at ground
floor and a 12-pane sash above. All these windows have unhorned sashes,
all have margin panes except that to the right at ground floor which is
4-paned in the centre, and all those at 1st floor have painted stone
surrounds including ornamental balustrades. The south front (to the
garden) is likewise asymmetrical, having a short pedimented wing offset
to the right, with a full-width canted bay at ground floor containing
tall tripartite French windows, and a large square window above (with
altered glazing); a round-headed window right of this (lighting the
porch); a verandah roof to the left; and 8-pane unhorned sashed windows
at 1st floor, both with margin panes and balustrades like the others.
Hipped roof of shallow pitch, with central chimney stack. The north side
wall has a raised centre with a coved niche at ground floor and a
12-pane sash above (like the others, including the balustrade); and a
1-window rear portion stepped back and 3-storeyed to the same height,
with similar margin-paned unhorned sashes on all floors. INTERIOR: not
inspected, but known to have features of equivalent quality, including
elaborate moulded plaster cornices and a staircase with light-well
similarly decorated.
