Mystole House,
South Mystole and
West Wing
(formerly listed as
Mystole House and
Georgian House)
TR 05 SE 11/257 29.9.52.


This mansion originally called Mystole House was built by Charles Fagge in
the early C18 on the site of a C16 house built by John Bungey Prebendary of
Christ Church Canterbury. Its principal front faces north. This is of two
storeys, attics and cellars. Red brick. Hipped tiled roof with wooden modillion
eaves cornice. Nine sashes with glazing bars intact. The centre portion of
three windows projects with a pediment over in which the modillions have consoles
below them and an attic window in the tympanum with a curved brick pediment
over this window. Central doorcase with fluted Doric pilasters, triglyph frieze,
pediment and semi-circular fanlight. Ground floor addition of two windows
at west end with parapet over having a ball capital at its outer angle and
a round-headed doorway with door of six fielded panels. The east front in
1895 was altered by Sir R Blomfield and now has six windows and five pedimented
dormers, but originally had only three windows and two dormers. Modern bay
window added at north end on ground and first floors. In the centre is a modern
projection with a large attic storey. To the south of this is a further modern
addition matching the original portion plus its modern bay. At the west of
the building are service portions which are probably C17, known as West Wing.
The interior contains some panelling and marble fireplaces.
