Kings Newton Hall
Small country house. Early C17, and restored in 1900 after a
fire in 1859, with minor additions. Rubble stone with ashlar
dressings and quoins, plus deep chamfered plinth and moulded
first floor stringcourse. Graduated slate roof with large brick
ridge stack on stone base and pairs of large external stacks to
west and east elevations, with diamond set brick pots to west
and solid brick pots to east. Two storeys plus attics and
H-plan. Street elevation has gabled bays to either side of a
wide central bay. This has a moulded four-centred arch set in a
flat headed surround, with a similar door in porch behind. To
either side there are flanking single light windows, and on the
side walls to the central bay and to centre of the gabled bays
there are cross windows. Similar arrangement of windows above,
with dripmoulds to the outer windows and transomes in the single
light windows. Above the door to centre there is another cross
window and to either side there are hopper heads dated 1560.
Western window facing into the centre has been blocked up with
stone rubble. Above again the gabled bays each have a 2-light
mullion window with dripmould and centre bay has two hipped
dormers with 2-light casements to centre and similar 3-light
ones to side walls. West elevation has a gabled central bay
with a large 3-light triple transomed staircase window with
dripmould and 2-light mullioned window above, flanked to either
side by pairs of cross windows to ground and first floors, one
on either side of the large external stacks. East elevation is
similar except for a gabled c1910 addition to south. All
windows have recessed and cyma reversa mouldings and most are
1910 copies of the earlier windows. Interior was completely
renewed in 1910, with an C18 style staircase, stone four-centred
arched fireplaces and stone four-centred arched doorcases.
Former seat of the Hardinge family. Interior not inspected.
