4/26 The Stone House


House, 1911, by R. Mangnall Bluhm, for A.T.R. Houghton. Snecked sandstone,
stone slate roof. Roughly L-plan: 3-bay range facing south, with long
receding east wing embracing a shorter rear extension. Two storeys in C17
vernacular style (said to be imitating Old Rectory of Wooton-by-Woodford,
Gloucestershire), with steeply-pitched roof, gables and gablets, mullioned
windows (some also transomed). Garden front has set-back centre bridged at
1st floor by timber framing with a central gableted oriel and a balcony to the
right of this (former loggia beneath now altered), flanked by gabled bays with
transomed windows at ground floor, mullioned above, and loop lights in the
gables; right return wall has inter alia a 6-light transomed stairlight, and a
canted bay window. At the rear the extension incorporating the porch has a
doorway with architrave and cornice; the roof of the service wing terminates
in a bell gable, and a pitched roof at lower level links the gable wall with
various outbuildings, including a stable with loft approached by external
steps. Interior: the principal feature of interest is the staircase, which
was taken from the Castle Inn in Preston (demolished c.1910): this is
dog-legged, has closed string, panelled newel posts, turned barley sugar
balusters, broad moulded handrail, and probably dates from c.1700.
