2/76 Bernithan Court and
adjoining walls to rear yard


House. Late C17 (possibly incorporating earlier building). Painted brick,
painted stone plinth and dressings, tiled swept roof. Double depth in plan,
central entrance and stair well, rear yard enclosed by brick walls attached
to north-west and to north-east, further adjoining former service block (qv).
Two storeys, cellars and attics, moulded string course, coved cornice, five
cross-casement windows with solid frames, central dormer with single small
vertical glazing bar sash window flanked by C20 skylights; central entrance
with pedimented hood on carved brackets, moulded architrave, 6-panelled door.
North-west return: 2-light stone mullioned windows light cellar, central
bolection moulded doorway, further 2-light stone mullioned window and two
square-headed doorways to rear; well-plan roof with two symmetrically placed
chimneys. Interior: retains a significant proportion of contemporary fittings,
main framed newel staircase with turned balusters, panelled newels and moulded
strings, newels connected by slender columns, further second dog-leg staircase
to south-east with similar turned balusters. Decorative plastered ceilings
to staircase hall and room to north and north-east with grape, pomegranate
and fleur-de-lis enrichments. Room to north-east also contains late C17
panelling and bolection moulded surround to the fireplace; similar fireplace
in hall. A fine example of a late C17 gentry house owing something to mid-C17
Thorpe types and similar to Langstone Court (qv). The fine interior suggests
a late C17 or c1700 date (of datestone of 1695 on barn qv). Both possibly
inspired by Troy House near Monmouth (built for Marquis of Worcester) or the
Castle House in Monmouth (also for Lord Worcester) both typical,post-
Restoration houses.
