1. MARGARETTING MAIN ROAD
5213 (South-East Side)
TL 60 SE 12/383 29.12.52.
Approached by a drive from Main Road. Prior to 1745 the house was known as "Shenfield".
Originally an early C16 moated manor house built by John Berdefeld of Shenfield
(1477-1514). The moat survives, with much of the C16 brick revetment (QV). The
house was refronted in red brick and altered in 1714 by William Alexander of Shenfield.
In the C20 a wing was added to the east side, in C18 style matching the west block.
2 storeys and attics. The west front is 5 window range, double-hung sashes with
glazing bars, in flush cased frames. The ground storey windows have gauged brick
arches with stuccoed keystones. A raised brick band with a moulded stucco string
course runs between the storeys. A central 6-panel door with raised and fielded
panels and a semi-circular fanlight with ornamental glazing bars has a doorcase
with fluted Roman Doric columns and an open segmental modillion pediment. The
doorway is approached by a flight of steps. On the south side there are 2 two-
storeyed canted bays, tile hung, with double hung sashes with glazing bars and
central casements with semi-circular arched glazing bars to the window heads.
Roof tiled, hipped on the north and south ends, with a modillion eaves cornice,
2 gabled dormers to the west front and 1 gabled dormer to the north and south
fronts. The interior has a fine C17 panelled dining room and 3 panelled bedrooms.
The house, which is approached by a bridge over the moat, is set in fine gardens.
