6/116 Standen Hall

Country house, rebuilt 1757 (VCH) with west wing rebuilt c.1858. Squared
sandstone with slate roofs. East front a symmetrical composition of 3
storeys and 7 bays, with projecting quoins, a string course above the
1st floor and a cornice. The central 3 bays on the ground floor project
to carry an attached giant order of Doric columns supporting an entablature
with triglyph frieze and a dentilled moulded pediment. Windows sashed,
with glazing bars on the 1st floor and to the 3 right-hand bays of the
2nd floor, the remainder sashed with no glazing bars. All have architraves,
the 3 central 1st floor ones with pulvinated friezes and pediments, the
central one segmental. The central doorway has Tuscan pilasters, a semi-
circular head, and a pediment on console brackets. 2 chimneys on ridge.
Adjoining to the right is a 2-storey 3-bay wing in a similar style.
Adjoining its front wall at right angles is the single-storey billiard room
of 1876. The south front has, at its right-hand side, 2 bays of the 3-
storey east block, the 2nd floor above a cornice. Towards the centre of
the facade is a recessed 2-storey section of 3 bays in a similar style,
with a central doorway with architrave, and pediment on console brackets.
The doorway is within an open Adamesque porch with corner urns. To the
left are 3 bays of the taller 2-storey 1858 wing, whose details are more
Italianate on the west side. Interior appears to have been re-modelled in
C19th. North room at front of east block has pedimented oak doorcases.
Door in east front now enters under a stair with stick balusters and ramped
handrail. 1st floor rooms not accessible at time of survey.
