9/256 Manor House
Manor house. Circa 1710 probably for Robert Dashwood, altered and extended C19.
Coursed squared limestone with ashlar dressings, coursed squared marlstone and
brick; Stonesfield-slate and Welsh-slate roofs with ashlar and rendered stacks.
Complex plan of several builds. Main range is a symmetrical 5-window block, of 2
storeys plus attic, and has rusticated quoins, storeyband and a moulded wooden
cornice below a hipped roof; 12-pane sashes at first floor have moulded stone
architraves with projecting keyblocks, but similar ground-floor openings have
all been lowered to take French windows, the central opening (probably
originally the main entrance) having a more elaborate architrave. Roof has 3
hipped roof dormers with 2-light casements, and has similar dormers in the ends.
A 4-window late-C19 range to right, of one storey plus attic, has similar
ground-floor openings with full-height sashes, but the upper sashes rise into
segmental pediments broken by tall keyblocks. 3-window rear wing, returning from
left, is in stone-mullioned style of c.1850, and includes the 4-centre-arched
main entrance. Rear of house is part marlstone and part brick, attached service
ranges including an octagonal brick dairy. Interior: open-well cantilevered
stair of c.1850; C19 joinery, fireplaces and plasterwork; 2 stone
bolection-mould fireplaces of c.1700 (probably re-used) in rear wing.
