1500 to 1520, mid C17, C18, C19. The original house for Lord Sandys substantially
remains as a 2-storeyed U-shaped structure, with 3-storeyed towers at the external
corners, and a chapel (1518-27) attached at the east side. The north front was a
symmetrical design of 2.1.1.2 windows, with the added chapel (4 windows) ending in a
half-octagon; the centre 3 bays were altered by the addition of a full-height portico.
Red brick walling in English bond, with diaper patterns, stone weathered bands, plinth,
crenellated parapet. The windows have C17 moulded stone frames, with C18 sashes
within; those of the chapel have the original mullioned and transomed stone frames, the
taller beneath 4 central arches and hood-moulds. The centre 3 bays were altered about
1654, with the provision of a classical portico (said to be the earliest, and by John
Webb) with a pedimented wooden entablature, brick cheeks with wide tall openings,
stucco columns (2 circular within square corner columns), carved stone Corinthian caps;
the interior is also stuccoed, with an upper window (and small balustrade) above the
doorway, both with architraves. The south front has flanking wings which end as gables
containing 2-storeyed (C18) bays, there is a projecting wing of one bay in each angle
(together with a stack) and a projecting centrepiece with a C19 2-storeyed porch, of
1.3.1.1.1.3.1 windows. The walling is the same, with a plain parapet. Stone classical
doorcases occur in the end blocks (facing inwards) and in the centre, and between them
is a shallow paved court bounded by a balustrade. On the east side are basement
windows of the original structure. The house is notable for its interiors, which
include a first-floor gallery lined with linen-fold wainscot, panelled rooms, an
original interior to the chapel with panelling and stained glass, and a classical
staircase hall of about 1780, having Doric and Corinthian Orders and coffered ceilings.
Note: there is an extensive bibliography about the Vyne, which now belongs to the
National Trust.
