3/27 Frogmore Hall
Country House, now offices. Circa 1863 incorporating earlier C19
house, W wing c1897. By Francis Wigg ( - 1868) as his own
country house (Colvin (1978) 887-8). Red brick with stone
dressings and steep slate roofs. A picturesquely massed large
neo-Gothic country house, in its own park, with entrance court on
the E, and main rooms looking E over the Beane Valley. Planned
around a lofty stair hall in a square tower with chequered
parapet and 2 large gothic windows. W front of 2-storeys and
attics, has 2 large gabled wings with tall canted bay windows,
and glazed stone gallery between. Offices and stable block at N.
A characteristic use of prismatic chamfers in elevations and
mullioned sash windows extends to interior, said to be
deliberately plain to set off tapestries and pictures. Freestone
fireplaces with Caernarvon arches on simple-chamfers transposed
to white marble with red lozenge insets in main rooms. 3 cast
iron grates in Japanese style by Barnard and Barnard. Stair hall
with arcaded stair and landing and patterned polychrome tiled
floor, restored c1980 with former stencilled decoration copied
for wallpaper. An interesting and idiosyncratic C19 architect's
house little altered. (Pevsner (1977) 79).
