METTINGHAM BECCLES ROAD
TM 38 NE
4/15 Mettingham Hall
1-9-53
GV II*
Farmhouse. Mainly mid C17 but part possibly earlier. Red brick, with a
plastered facade; part of the left wing has mid C20 textured render. There is
a corbelled string course around most of the house at first floor level,
raised segmentally over the windows; similar arches form drip moulds over the
upper windows on the wings. Plaintiled roof. 2 storeys and attics. H-type
plan with shaped gables except to the rear of the shorter left wing.
Symmetrical facade arranged 1:3:1. Mainly C18 cross windows, some lights
retaining square-leaded glass; the left wing has mid C20 windows, the right
wing an original ovolo-moulded attic window. C18 pedimented doorcase and 6-
panel door. The door surround is painted to resemble quoins. The centre
section and inner returns of the wings have a plaster coved eaves cornice.
Against the right wing is a C17 lean-to addition, and behind this a truncated
external stack. The rear of the centre section shows signs of alteration:
there is one C18 4-light square-leaded window with cornice and a second
truncated stack. The left wing terminates in an axial stack which is placed
internally and suggests that this wing may have once extended further to the
rear. The attached remains of the dairy are now used as garaging. The
interior has been somewhat altered. The main feature is the fine original
stair in the right wing, extending to the attic around a narrow rectangular
well: there are turned balusters and newels with acorn finials. The room in
the rear of this wing has a quoined stucco fireplace with 3-centre arch,
enriched with lozenge and triangle motifs. This room had complete C18
panelling, now removed. Some bridging beams have ornate stop-chamfers.
