10/320 Sydenham Mill Lodge and cottage
- immediately to the north east


House, formerly the Rectory. A circa early C19 main block with a crosswing that
probably dates from the C17 and a circa C19 cottage at right angles to the main
block. The early C19 block is stone rubble with a plinth and set back pilasters;
slate roof hipped at ends. Rendered stacks at ends have grey brick chimney shafts
with blind recesses to each face. Double depth plan with a gabled rear projection,
probably containing the stair. A crosswing at the left end under a lower slate roof
is probably C17 in origin and may have formed part of a C17 house on the site. This
house was probably adapted as a service wing when the early C19 block was built. L-
plan. 2 storeys. The main block has deep eaves and a 5-bay symmetrical front with a
central 2-leaf panelled front door below a depressed arched fanlight with ornamental
glazing. The soffit of the doorway is panelled to match the front door. 12-pane sash
windows, the ground floor windows under flat cut stone arches. Ground floor window
left is a slightly smaller 9-pane sash. Small C20 window inserted to the left of the
front door. The front elevation of the wing has a roof hipped at the left end and an
adjoining left-hand bay with a lean-to roof. The front elevation of the wing has
casement window with galzing bars and at the rear the wing has 2 late C18/early C19
first floor 16-pane sashes. An early C19 rear door to the main block has a moulded
stone cornice on moulded stone consoles. The circa C19 cottage at right angles to the
main block is stone rubble, partly plastered and colourwashed to the front, slate
roof gabled at ends, left gable end stone stack, stone lateral stack to rear. The
single depth cottage runs parallel to the crosswing across a narrow court and is
linked to it by a pentice carried on posts. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front
with 2 front doors. Fenestration to the right-hand is C20, the left-hand windows are
2- and 3-light casements with glazing bars.
Interior The early C19 main block has been modernized with C20 fireplaces, some C19
shutters survive. The crosswing has a chamfered beam to the ground floor front room
and may contain other early features.
