1/109 Preesgweene Hall
Shown on O.S. map as Preesgwyn House.
House. Mid-C17, remodelled 1834 (date on rainwater head) with later additions
and alterations. Roughcast brick on rendered rubblestone plinth, probably
partly concealing timber frame; slate roof concealed by coped parapet with
pointed corner finials to front. 3-bay main range with 2-bay range at
right-angles to rear on right. Eaves raised to front of main range.
3 storeys. 3 windows, 4-paned sashes to first and second floors (to left
and right only on second floor) with shaped plastered lintels, those to
first floor having carvings of human heads and leaf decoration to centre.
Shallow hip-roofed verandah to ground floor continued to left gable end,
over late C19 French windows to left and right. Central entrance has open
stone Roman Doric pedimented porch with metopes and triglyphs slightly projecting
from verandah. Late C19 half-glazed door has earlier C19 wreathed and
radiating fanlight with beading and fluted corner spandrels. Stepped
external end stack to left and integral end stack to right. Floor band
to left rear range cut by segmental-headed opening with 3-light wooden mullion
window; integral end stack to rear of range. Integral lateral stack to
C19 rear addition. Interior. Chamfered beams, some boxed in, to ground-
floor rooms. Infilled doorway to rear of central passage has fanlight
similar to that in front door but without beading. Reused Jacobean panelling
below. Dog-leg staircase to left of passage rises to second floor. Elabor-
ately carved with unusually shaped splat balusters [similar to those at
Fron Farmhouse (q.v.)] and carved decoration to newel-posts, closed string and
moulded handrail. Probably later turned balusters rising from newel-posts
to support flights above; other newel-posts have urn finials (probably C19),
some now removed. C18 panelled doors and C19 fireplaces with decorative
cast-iron grates throghout; wide boarded oak floor boards to first-floor
rooms. Double-purlin roof with parts of collar and tie beam trusses exposed
to second floor of main range.
