07/08/52 No.17
Durley House
(Formerly Listed as:
(West side)
Nos.17 AND 17A
Durley House and Durley Cottage)


House. Early C19 with later C19 extensions to each side of the
front. White brick to front, red brick to rear; slate roofs
with a paired bracketed eaves soffit.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and cellar. The house is in 2 parallel
ranges. 4 flat pilasters are spaced across the centre front
and a brick band runs between each storey and below the eaves
soffit. 3 windows to the centre front, all 12-pane sashes in
plain reveals. A central 6-panel door has a plain rectangular
fanlight and an Ionic porch with fluted columns.
The slightly lower extension on the left has a blank wall; the
extension on the right (formerly No.17A) has 2 large-paned
sash windows to the upper storey and one to the ground storey.
A 4-panel door with the top panels glazed has a fanlight with
radiating glazing bars in a semicircular brick arch with plain
reveals. The back wall is faced in mid-C19 red brick, probably
over an earlier core, with a good canted bay on the south
side. 12-pane segmental-headed sash windows in plain reveals.
INTERIOR: cellar below part of rear range has walling
including kidney flint and stone blocks. A small extension
contains C19 wine bins. The principal ground storey room in
the rear has a good plaster cornice with egg-and-dart and
bead-and-reel ornament. The south side of the front was
extended c1900 in a style matching the earlier interior with
ornate plaster cornices; this doubled the size of the ground
storey room to the left of the entry. The extension to the
right of the entry was in a plainer style. Stair in entrance
hall with stick balusters, bracketed strings and wreathed
