- II*

Early C18, late C18. Almost square mansion of 2 storeys with attic (and cellar),
planned round a central top-lit staircase. The west elevation seems to be an
original facade of symmetrical form, with 3 dormers, 5 ground floor windows,
the 1st floor being marked by 5 roundel recesses containing busts (said to be
of Bacchus and 4 Roman emperors), the blank upper wall concealing the full height
saloon behind 2/5th of this front. Hipped red tile roof, dormers with gables
having full cornice moulding and retaining old casements. Modillion cornice,
surmounted at each end by a (late C18) stone vase. Red brickwork in Flemish
bond, rubbed flat arches, stone cills, plinth. Sashes. The central French
door has a stone frame, of quoins. At each end there extends a high brick wall,
pierced by 4 arched openings framed in rusticated brickwork and each filled
up to impost level by wrought-iron railings. The north elevation has original
wings (of 1 bay), the slightly projecting central part (a later C18 alteration)
of Gothick appearance, to include a ½-octagon. The upper fenestration is 1:2:1:2:1,
the lower is roundel 2:3:2 roundel. Red tile, hipped roof, flat-roofed dormers
modillion cornice above wings with vases at each end, the main part being a
castellated parapet, with recessed panels, a 2nd floor band, 1st floor band,
wide end pilasters, rubbed flat arches stone cills, plinth. Sashes in exposed
frames and central French door, with stone quoins. The east front, may have
been symmetrical of 5 bays, half still showing on the south side, but on the
northern half modified as 1 window above 2 small round windows; the standard
features are repeated (mainly a recent restoration). This original entrance
front was blocked by an Edwardian unit of 1905, now removed. The south front
has more alterations, including 2 2-storeyed bays, but the 3 gabled dormers
seem to be original. Within the house contains most of its original appearance,
partly due to thorough recent restoration. Features include walls panelled
above and below a dado moulding, doorcases and panelled doors, fireplaces,
folding internal shutters. More elaborate details remain in the saloon, with
its tall coved ceiling and pedimented doorcases. The late C18 stone staircase
has wrought-iron rails, the landing having arched openings arranged formally
but not symmetry. Above the dining room fireplace is a C18 wind indicator
(only recently discovered). Ref Country Life Vol LXXX. A National Trust property.
