1.12.51 House)


House. Circa late C16, possibly remodelled in 1641 (datestone reset in stables, qv)
for the Baron family with fine late C17 or early C18 panelling. Stone rubble. Slate
roof with gable ends. Stone rubble and granite axial, front lateral and end stacks
with moulded granite caps.
Plan: Original plan uncertain. The main range has a 3-room and originally through
passage plan. The entrance, through a C17 2-storey porch, is to left of centre,
leading into a wide passage which was blocked to the rear with a late C19 stair in an
outshut. There is a stone rubble cross wall on the lower left hand side of the
passage, continuing up to the apex and containing the flue of the chamber fireplace
above. C17 screen on higher side of passage. Lower end heated by probably
originally end stack. Hall to right heated by front lateral stack. Thick cross wall
to apex between hall and inner room, containing flue of chamber fireplace. Inner
room beyond heated by end stack. The roof above the hall and inner room appears to
have been raised in the C17, possibly when the house was remodelled. Attached on the
lower left hand end is a C17 cross wing containing 2 service rooms with kitchen to
rear and dairy in wing to front. To the rear of the inner room is a C17 2-room plan
wing heated by end stacks. In the circa C19 an outshut was added across the rear of
the lower room of the main range and there is a late C19 stair in an outshut
adjoining to the rear of the passage. The adjoining outshut to the rear of the hall
has a butler's pantry on ground floor and corridor on first, connecting the stair to
the first floor chambers and rear right hand wing. This outshut is probably a
remodelling of a C17 stair projection, originally situated to the rear on the lower
side of the hall.
In the late C17 or early C18 the interior of the house was remodelled when fine
quality panelling and plasterwork were added.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:2:1:2 window front. Entrance to left of centre
with gabled 2-storey porch. 4-centred granite arch with bar stops and C19 studded
door and 2-light mullion window above. To left 4-light granite mullion window with
king mullion remaining but flanking mullions removed and two C20 12-pane sashes on
first floor. To right the projecting front lateral hall stack has a narrow sash
directly. to left and a double C20 sash to right lighting hall with double 12-pane
sash beyond lighting inner room. First floor has double 12-pane sashes. In the left
hand wing, the dairy window has a lattice grid. C20 12-pane sash on first floor in
end wall of wing.
Interior: Wide passage with C17 screen on higher right hand side with scratch
moulded framing and raised and fielded panels. Late C19 stair to rear lit by round
headed stair window. Lower end has C19 timber surround and later grate to fireplace.
Circa C18 bench along front wall. Hall has late C17 or early C18 bolection moulded
chimney-piece, dado rail and heavy moulded cornice. C17 moulded doorframe with ornate
bar stops with incised patterns (qv Cullacott and Radford in Worthington Parish) in
rear wall, possibly originally leading to a stair projection.
Similar doorframe between hall and inner room. The inner room has complete stained
and grained bolection moulded panelling with bolection moulded chimney-piece and
pedimented doorcases. Heavy moulded cornice and circa late C17 plaster ceiling with
heavy ovolo-moulded ribs terminating in moulded oak-leaves. Cellar in wing to rear
has unmoulded heavy floor joists. C18 back stair with heavy balusters and square
newels. The service wing to front left has a blocked kitchen fireplace with large
cloam-oven projection on rear and C17 chamfered square headed doorframe with straight
cut stops between kitchen and dairy.
On the first floor the chambers above the hall and inner room have bolection moulded
chimney-pieces; ovolo-moulded doorcases with scroll stops and reset C17 panelling in
rear wing. There are several C17 and C18 cupboards with original hinges of
butterfly, cockshead and H patterns. Roof structure to main range not accessible.
The roof structure above the hall and inner room appears to have been raised in the
C17 although there appears to be the remains of a truncated blade of an earlier truss
surviving above the hall chamber. Roof structure above front left hand wing of circa
C17 with halved, lap-jointed and pegged apices and collars.
