GV II

House. 1902, probably by Stockdale Harrison and Sons for W H Stevens. Arts and
Crafts Vernacular Revival style, using brick with stone dressings and some half
timbering. Plain tile roof. Clear external expression of internal plan with
service wing forming courtyard on entrance front. Main range of entrance front
is of 4 bays with one bay to left of porch where two small stained glass windows
light the hall. The porch is a narrow full height projecting gable with timbered
arched entrance door and slightly jettied to half timbering above, with 4 light
wood mullioned windows. Beyond this the hallway is expressed by a long band of
windows: 10 stone mullioned lights. Mullioned windows of 6 and 2 lights above and
2 attic dormers within the roof. Service wing to right with back door and smaller
casement windows. Eastern gable wall has expressed and moulded brick stack which
in its scale acts as a pivot to the architecture and which contains two small
inglenook windows. The upper storey is of jettied timberwork and this continues
across the garden front, which is of 5 bays, asymmetrically disposed. Paired gables
to the left, one with a wide canted bay with 2 light mullioned windows and cartouche
decoration above, the other has a wide mullioned and transomed window. Beyond these
in the central section is a loggia with Doric columns, recessed beneath the jettying,
and a wide 5 light mullioned and transomed window beyond it. Canted bay window
in right hand bay. Stone mullions to ground floor windows but wood in the first
floor, and hipped gabled dormers within the roof. In the tile hung western gable
is an oriel bay window at first floor level and over it the gable is jettied out.
This balances another tile hung gable across the rear courtyard. The interior is
in a loosely Jacobethan style, but updated by the use of lincrustre above the wood
panelling. Fine staircase with heavy newels and Jacobean style carving defines
a square with a gallery above it. Stained glass window in the hall depicts Sir
Galahad and Sir Lancelot in a markedly Pre-Raphaelite style.Plan in care of Oadby and
Wigston District Council,stamped Stockdale Harrison and Sons,and dated January 23 1902.
