Brizlincote Hall
Farmhouse (formerly
listed as Brizlincote
Hall [House only])
House. Built in 1707 for the Second Earl of Chesterfield. Red
brick and sandstone ashlar, hipped plain tile roof with two
massive red brick and ashlar stacks. Chamfered stone plinth,
projecting stone quoins, moulded first floor band and moulded
dentilled second floor band. Segmental pediments across the
full width of each facade. Rectangular plan. Two storeys and
attics. North elevation of five symmetrical bays. Semi-
basement with four windows. Flight of five semi-circular steps
to central doorway with moulded architrave and swan-neck
pediment on moulded consoles repeated at right angles against
the wall. Half glazed door. Inscribed above NON IGNARA MALI
MISERIS SUCCURRERE DISCO AD 1714. (Not ignorant of ill, I learn
to help the unhappy). To the left, two glazing bar sashes in
moulded architraves. Two similar architraves to the right, one
with a blind window, the second with a cross window casement.
The first floor has five windows in moulded architraves with
alternating segmental and triangular pediments. Cross window
casements in all but the left window which is blind. Within the
pediment a central blind window with triangular pediment,
flanked by glazing bar sashes in moulded architraves with swan
neck pediments, flanked in turn by blind circular windows.
Similar five bay south elevation with mostly C19 casement
lights. Above the doorway the inscription HOMO LUPUS AD 1714.
(Man is a Wolf to Man). Two bay east elevation with C19 single
bar sashes in C18 moulded architraves. Two similar above, in
pedimented architraves and two circular windows in the pediment,
one of them blind. Lower C19 and C20 wing to west not of
special interest. Interior: Brick vaulted basement service
rooms. Large four-centred arched fireplace in what was probably
the kitchen. Circular splays to the windows. Low ground floor
rooms, mostly altered. The hall has a huge four-centred arched
fireplace bay. One room has an Adam style chimneypiece. From
the hall a door opens to a plain dogleg staircase. The attic
staircase has a balustrade with balusters that look C20. The
first floor is treated as a piano nobile and all the rooms have
bolection moulded panelling, with doors to match. The cornice
remains in one room, double, with egg and dart. The attic
contains four boxed-in lead cisterns which drain off the water
from the roof.
