Formerly Offices of Kingsclere and Whitechurch Rural District Council. A Queen Anne
house, with substantial additions to the rear, to form civic offices. Early C18,
C20. Symmetrical front (east) of 2 storeys and attic, 5 windows. Hipped tile roof,
fully-moulded wood cornice; 2 Gothic dormers of later date with pointed form,
enclosing sash windows. Walling is of blue-brindle brickwork with red dressings;
flush quoins and slightly-cambered rubbed arches, stone cills, aprons to the first
floor, plinth. Sashes. The tall doorcase has a richly-moulded (but unorthodox)
cornice, projecting at each side with grooved fret soffits, scroll brackets above
fluted pilasters, panelled frieze, decorative fanlight above a modern door. Within,
there is an original marble fireplace, plain dado panelling, plaster cornices,
archways to the hall and upper hall, and staircase with wreathed-handrail (and masked
rails). In matching style, there is a one-bay flat roof wing to the north side, and a
large block to the rear, of recent date.
