1781 ST JOHN'S
(South Side)
Saint John's House
SP 2865 SE 4/194


One of the most important buildings in Warwick. Present front, circa 1666,
is considered a very good example of the period. 2 storey plus attic,
andstone building five bays wide Identical geometrical gable heads to
centre and end bays, between which are triangular gable heads, nearly all
with finials intact and each having a 2-light mullioned stone window.
Central 2 storey projecting porch with semi-circular-headed rusticated
entrance and four-light transomed and mullioned window over. End bays
have wide, 2 storey splayed bay windows; these have ornamental carved balustrades
of pierced stonework typical of the period. Between projecting bays are
6-light stone windows of similar character. All have leaded lights with
rectangular panes, some being of old glass. Half 4 plan with lower gabled
back wings, old tiled roofs. Good interior features include original newel
close string staircases, early chimneypieces, late C17 panelling. On the
site and perhaps incorporating structure of the medieval Hospital of Saint
John the Baptist, founded by Henry de Newburg, Earl of Warwick, in the
reign of Henry II. Some timber framework exposed on the back elevation
suggests a refacing and remodelling circa 1666 of the front range. The
east back wing is dated 1626 with initials AS (for the owner Anthony Stoughton
?). The west back wing appears to have been built circa 1666.
