1/162 The Lodge, Nizels
Lodge to Nizels House (q.v.). Circa 1840s, possibly enlarged in the late
C19/early C20. The north block is English bond brick, the south block Flemish
bond; peg-tile roof with ornamental diamond patterns; 2 brick stacks. Tudor
Plan and Development: Overall T plan. The Lodge faces south, overlooking the
drive to Nizels House with a canted bay observation window. Entrance on the
east elevation. The building consists of 2 blocks at right angles, the north
block, judging from the brickwork, may be earlier; if so, the south block has
been carefully designed to match it. There is a stack at the north end of the
north block and an axial stack at the junction between the north and south
blocks. There is a C20 single-storey flat-roofed addition at right angles to
the north block on the west side.
Exterior: Very unspoiled externally with curly pierced bargeboards with
pendants and finials to all the gables and a complete set of C19 2-light iron
casements with sexagonal panes. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:1 window south
elevation, slightly projecting and gabled to the front at the left (west). To
the right there is a canted bay to the ground floor with a pyramidal roof with
fish-scale tiles below a gabled dormer. 1:2 east elevation, the projecting
gabled end of the south block to the left with a C20 door below a rubbed brick
flat arch with a window alongside to the right. The east front of the north
block, to the right has 2 ground floor casements and a gabled dormer. The
rear (west) elevation of the north block also preserves a gabled dormer with
curly bargeboards and an original window.
Interior: Not inspected.
Group value with the gate piers and gate (q.v.) at the entrance to the drive
to Nizels House.
