4/46 Osgathorpe Hall Farmhouse
Farmhouse, late C17, showing renaissance influence. Uncoursed rubble on
plinth. Main range with gabled cross wing. 2 storeys and attic.
Principal front is south facing, but this is result of recent modifications;
originally access was by opposed entrances to east of main range but is now
in centre of south front; a doorway (moved from former position?) with
bolection moulded architrave and triangular pediment over. Tall mullioned
windows to main range with deep plain architrave and moulding. Above each
floor, a moulded stone string course. Cross wing projects to west, with
angle quoins, and stone coping and kneelers to gable. 3-light mullioned and _ _
transomed windows, and in the gable a smaller mullion with plain hood mould
and decorative blank oval over. Side elevation to west has 2 massive projecting
stacks with angle quoins, and various 2-light mullioned windows with continuous
hood moulds, lighting staircase within. To east, a low projecting gable with
2-light mullions is a modern pastiche on an earlier core.
Interior has open-well closed-string staircase.
A decorative detail illustrated on photographs taken before alterations, links
this house with the school and almshouses in the village, and it is reputed to
have been built for their founder, Thomas Harley.
