Listing Text

(West Side)
25.7.78 Stoneleigh
SE 1218 21/276
Mid C19. Hammer-dressed stone. Pitched tile roof. Elaborately shaped gables.
2 storeys and attics. Picturesque plan. Mullioned and transomed windows,
most with pointed relieving arches which have continuous moulded imposts.
Steep 2-centred arched door in long gabled porch with moulded 2-centred arch:
sides have arcades of 3 moulded 2-centred arches on short columns with elaborate
foliate capitals. 3-storey tower also with shaped gables on each side, and
pyramidal tile roof. Stacks with crocketed cornice and caps with geometrical
ashlar ornament. Ripped roofed conservatory to rear.
Some time before 1891 the Manchester architect George Faulkner Armitage (1849-1937)
was commissioned to add on a billiard room for Henry Martin, with internal
joinery of such high quality that it was accorded a double page illustration
in The British Architect of February 1891. G F Armitage had presumably established
a reputation in Huddersfield with his art furniture and interior decoration
shown at the 1883 Huddersfield Exhibition, and illustrated in The Cabinet Maker
and Art Furnisher of 1st September 1883. The billiard room has apparently
been altered, but there is much elaborate late C19 joinery inside, which may
be by Armitage.
