6/10 Dalham Hall


House. 1705, for Simon Patrick, Bishop of Ely. 2 storeys and
attics on basement. 7 windows, the centre block of 3 bays set
slightly forward. Dark red brick with quoins in lighter red
brickwork; at the corners, rendered blocks give the effect of
rustication; an offset plinth with limestone coping at ground
floor, a rendered band at 1st floor, and coved cornice at the
eaves. Hipped slated roof with hipped casement dormers and
central chimneys. Tall sash windows with flat arches having
raised painted keystones, and a sunk oblong panel beneath the
cill; small-pane sashes of C19 and C20 at 1st floor, large-pane
sashes at ground floor. 2 windows flanking the entrance have
semi-circular heads of gauged brick; the basement windows have
segmental arched heads and leaded casements. Early C19 entrance
doorway with pilasters and entablature with small pediment; C20
glazed door and fanlight. A segmental flight of limestone steps
leads up to the entrance. A large 2-storey extension in similar
style with parapets and flat roof added to left c.1927; the
interior of the older house is believed to have been completely
renewed at that time, including fine panelling and other joinery,
staircase and moulded plasterwork, all in the C18 manner. A
large 1-storey glazed entrance porch added to rear, late C19 or
early C20. The house had 3 full floors and attics until a
serious fire of 1954, when the top floor was removed and the roof
reconstructed. The house and estate were acquired by Cecil
Rhodes c.1901, shortly before his death.
