13/56 Manor House


House, c.1730. Narrow, grey gault brick, Flemish bond to front
wall and English bond to side and rear walls. Only slightly
altered and added to in C19. Parapetted, hipped roof of plain
tiles with two ridge stacks. Double pile plan with opposing
front and rear entries. Two storeys and attics with band
between storeys and another at eaves height, now removed. Three
dormers. Symmetrical elevation in five bays. Segmental arches
to four recessed hung sashes of twelve panes each with original
glazing bars, and a round-headed arch to a similar central hung
sash. Central pedimented doorway with doorcase of fluted
pilasters and Doric entablature and frieze. Round-headed arch
to doorway. Door of six raised and fielded panels with a
fanlight with radial glazing bars. Early C19 cast iron railings
with honeysuckle motif and acorn finials to piers. Interior.
Much of the original detail is intact. One ground floor room
has raised and fielded panelling in two heights with a fine
cornice of dentil and other ornament. Equally fine are the
shouldered fireplace surround with a carved pulvinated frieze
and above a shouldered and ramped overmantel with rosettes to
the corners. This room also has a pedimented door with a
shouldered surround. The dining room is lined with raised and
fielded panelling but the cornice is less richly ornamented, and
the pulvinated frieze to the fireplace is unmoulded. The door-
ways have shouldered surrounds and the doorway to the second
wing has a swan's neck pediment. The hall and landing have
round-headed arches with panelled archivolts and keyblocks. The
hall floor is paved with stone and there is raised and fielded
panelling below the dado. The open-well staircase is of two
flights and landing. Open-string with turned balusters with
moulded and swept rail, fluted newels with curtail and scroll
tread brackets.
