SU 5249 10.1.77 Berrydown Court House

1 GV

1897-8 by Sir Edwin Lutyens. A large house with a near-symmetrical treatment of the
longer north (entrance) and south (garden front) elevations. Two-storeys and attic.
The north front has in the centre a 2-storeyed porch and at each end projecting
single-storeyed small wings, merging with the high walls enclosing the forecourt.
Hipped tile roofing, tall massive brick stacks, small flat-roofed dormers (to the east
side). Roughcast walling: cambered heavy timber beam forms the entrance, which has a
quarry tile floor with a step. Windows are square-leaded casements in oak frames,
being small 2-light units on the ground-floor, and a 9 (east side) and a 7 (west side,
with transoms) light unit beneath the eaves. The south front has a centrepiece and
wings projecting forward, and separated at the ground-floor by lead-flat roofing above
an arcade; the wide centre comprises 2 massive gables (meeting in a high valley) and
is entirely tile-hung; the east wing has a tile-hung gable jettied above a 2-storeyed
bay, with pilasters enclosing a tile hung first floor, the west wing breaks the
symmetry but is of similar form, again with tile-hung first floor. All the extensive
windows are leaded casements in oak frames, some with transoms; a wide bay of 9 units
almost fills the arcade on the ground-floor. This almost entirely tile-hung facade
has recessed areas on each side of the centre, containing a variety of windows and
chimney stacks. The west elevation is asymetrical, and dominated by a tall stack,
the original interior is virtually unaltered. The garden was designed by Miss Jekyll,
