4/110 No.34 (The Mansion House)


House, now offices and shop premises. Late C16 core; built on the site of the
hall of the Guild of St. Mary by Simon Pulham, who acquired the site with the
old building on it in 1564. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed; faced in
red mathematical tiles; plaintiled roof. 9 bays: 3:3:3, with the centre
breaking forward slightly. Parapet, with sections of turned balusters in
front of the dormer windows and the central break, and a plastered band below.
3 dormers with small-paned sash windows and moulded pediments, the 2 outer
triangular, the central segmental. 7 large-paned sash windows in flush frames
to the first floor with gauged brick heads and keystones. To each side of the
central break a blank window with ornate surround: enriched eared architrave
and open triangular pediment. On the ground floor, the sash windows have been
replaced along the western 2/3rd of the front by 2 mid-C19 shop entrances and
3 large canted shop windows which project from the face of the building. The
eastern 1/3rd of the front (separately occupied by Messrs Turner & Ellerby),
has an entrance door up steps, and brickwork refacing to the ground floor.
This is the only accessible part of the building, the remainder being
unoccupied. It contains a small room on the ground floor, with raised fielded
panelling. A dog-leg stair has a plain handrail and metal twist balusters.
On the first floor, a fine panelled room in the rear wing with double
bolection-moulded panels and window-shutters. In the bottom of the shutters
are 2 secret drawers. The roof over the rear range has side purlins; the
remainder plastered. In the panelled ground-floor room and the room above it
are semi-domed and semi-circular recessed cupboards set into the walls, one
made to revolve, and both with painted decoration and figures.
