Listing Text

8/55 Peatling Hall and Garden
Walls (formerly listed as
11.1.55. Little Peatling Hall)

Country house. Core is late C17 or early C18, extended by Detmar Blow
c1910. Brick with stone quoins and Swithland slate roof. Entrance front
faces south, 5 bays and 2 tall storeys, the left hand bay an addition by Blow,
who also added the projecting full height porch. Its round arched doorway
flanked and surmounted by slender pilasters with shallow moulded
entablatures. The windows are tall and slender with fine gauged brick heads
with stone keys. The glazing, 30-light sashes may also be the work of
Blow. Parapet with recessed panels and hipped roof recessed beyond. Garden
front gives a dramatic sense of height. It is 5 bays, and the outer bays are
canted projecting bay windows on each floor. The northernmost of these was
also added by Blow, making this front symmetrical. Central range is narrow
in width, but 3 storeys high with central French doors. Window detailing
similar to entrance part, and the parapet also continues. 5 bays recessed to
right were formerly 2 storeyed, now flat roofed. North gable wall shows the
relation of new and old work: it consists of 2 parallel ridges: that to west
is clearly C18, and its elevation has 2 sets of paired 16-light sashes to the
left, above ground floor doorway, and round arched windows with decorative
glazing lighting staircase beyond. 2 moulded sill bands. Inside early C18
staircase with turned balusters and fretted decoration on the cheeks. Garden
wall is attached to the house at SW and NW angles and forms a walled garden
and larger boundary wall terminating in gate piers with stone ball finials.
Wall is brick, buttressed, with facing brick copings.
