SE2132 PUDSEY (west side)

4/97 Nesbit Hall

GV 11*

Large house. Rainwater-heads initialled and dated "C & J. N. 1761" (Claud Nisbet).
Possibly by Edward Graves (Newark, architect of the nearby Moravian settlement at
Fulneck School (q.v.) with which building there are many similarities). Hammer-
dressed stone, ashlar dressings, some red-brown brick to inner return of wings,
stone slate roof. Hall-and-cross-wings plan, double-pile, wings projecting
slightly to front, U-shaped to rear. 2 storeys on a semi-basement. 7-bay
symmetrical facade. Basement band, ground-floor sill band broken by all windows
with lowered sills. Central 3-bay hall under a plain parapet has doorway
approached up a flight of 11 stone steps, with architrave, frieze decorated with
swags, consoles and cornice (modern French window). All windows have raised
plain stone surrounds with tooled central panel and border all containing modern
casements. 2-bay wings are framed by giant punch-dressed Tuscan quoin pilasters
on shouldered bases. Pedimented coped gable with ball finials to apexes, the
tympana having blind oculi (originally with spoked glazing). 2 ridge stacks at
junction of wings and hall. Rear has quoins, coped gables and stacks. Left-hand
return of 3 bays with central doorway set to one side and under tall arched
stair-window retaining original small-paned sash. Outer bays have windows similar
to front. Right-hand return has 4 bays all with windows as front except 2nd bay
which has tall doorway with monolithic jambs and overlight, extra window opened
between 3rd and 4th ground-floor bays.

Interior: stair-hall has open-well staircase with finely-turned mahogany balusters
and wreathed and ramped handrail. Good doorcases with eared architraves and
6-panel mahogany doors. Front rooms have plaster cornices. Decorative ceiling-
rose above stair and archway with imposts to 1st-floor passage. Rear cellars
have double-chamfered mullioned windows, now below ground level and perhaps relicts
of the previous building on the site, known as Bank House.
