LS25 (north side)
2/72 Park House Farmhouse
with attached screen
walls and pavilions


Farmhouse, with attached screen walls and pavilions. Later C18, altered. Squared
magnesian limestone, stone slate roofs, brick chimneys. Tripartite U-plan.
Two and 3 storeys: a set-back receding centre of 2 storeys clasped between
3-storey wings, when viewed from road, but designed so that the principal
architectural composition is the rear, facing Parlington Park. This is symmetrical,
with the 2-storey centre here projected as a semi-octagonal bay finished with
a parapet, this bay slightly overlapping the higher wings, the wings linked
by short screen walls to small flanking pavilions, and the whole composition
terminated at the outer ends by quadrant walls. The centre and wings have
a 1st floor sill-band and mostly 12-pane sashed windows: the projected bay
has 3 at ground floor and one in the centre of the 1st floor with a blind window
each side, and a blind balustrade in each side of the parapet; the wings each
have one similar window on each of the 1st 2 floors and a Yorkshire sliding
sash with glazing bars at 2nd floor. Hipped roofs with a ridge chimney to
the centre and side wall chimneys to the wings. To the left is a screen wall
with a doorway, then a single-cell open-pedimented pavilion which has a blocked
doorway framed by a recessed round-headed arch with Gibbs surround; and beyond
this a quadrant wall broken by a 5-bar gate. Similar features to the right
have been altered to make a lean-to shed against the screen wall, and by
substitution of a concrete lintel for the round-headed archway in the pavilion,
but the quadrant wall appears to be intact and incorporates a stile. Entrance
front has fenestration similar to that of rear, but with alterations: a doorway
at right-hand side of central block and blocked opening to centre which may
have been a doorway, a large canted bay at ground floor of right wing, and
windows variously of 4, 12, and 16 panes. Interior not inspected.
