SU 51 NE
4/6 Vernon Hill House
6.3.67 II

Country house. C18 vernacular building, with early C19 classical alterations to
the front and Tudor to the rear, and mid C19 Gothic extension. Stucco walls
with plain openings (hoodmoulds to the rear bay windows), parapet with balustrade
and moulded cornice: the extension is of colourwashed brickwork in Flemish bond,
with arcading of pointed arches to a verandah. Tile roof (hidden at the front
by the parapet) of double pile to the main block, the extension made prominent
by steepness, varied levels, and some hips. The rear (north) elevation of the
main blocks (c1830) is plain, relieved by two-storeyed splayed bays at each
side, of two storeys, 1.2.1 windows; casements, and a porch with an oval arch
and stepped parapet. The front (south) elevation of the main block is of similar
form at its east side, but the west side projects slightly as a tall symmetrical
facade, with half-hexagonal full-height bays, enclosing a wide porch, of two
storeys, 1.1.1:2 windows. Casements to the east, the facade with large sashes
in reveals. The porch extends to the corner of each bay, of the Tuscan Order
with balustraded parapet, with square columns enclosing round columns, an archi-
trave with panels, fanlight with interlaced circular patterns, and a three-
panelled (top glazed) door. The east extension has exaggerated tallness and
varied form, the central part being a crosswing to the main block and with a
pointed apse projecting towards the forecourt, and a lower front part, encircled
by a verandah on south and west sides (touching the apse), with a brick wall
pierced by pointed arches, and partly roofed with tiles, mostly with top glazing
(now gone): tall tapered stacks repeat the Gothic appearance: the windows in
the apse and an east-side oriel appear as tall mullions with central transomes
but are very slender sashes: other windows being less-exaggerated or of vernac-
ular form. The north-east corner of the L-shaped house, where the two different
styles meet, comprises several linked service units, of varied form and height.
Staircase within.
