House. Circa late C18 house retained as service wing to circa mid-late C19 house
built by Richard Floyd. Granite and killas rubble with granite dressings. Scantle
slate roofs with gable ends, projecting verges with pierced cusped wooden barge
boards and apex finials to C19 part. Brick axial chimney with 2 diagonally set
shafts over main roof crossing, lateral brick chimney over rear wall of right hand
room and brick chimney over left hand (rear) gable of C18 part.
Plan: C19 4 room cruciform plan added to 3 room L-plan C18 house with its range of
outbuildings. The C18 house adjoins the rear left hand corner of the rear wing of
the C19 house. The C19 house has front and rear rooms sharing the central stack,
pantry left and room on right with rear stack shared by lean-to in the angle behind.
The central cross wing is taller with full height first floor and attic room at the
front; the wings on either side have chambers partly in the roof spaces.
Exterior : 2 storeys. 1:1:1 bay west entrance front with doorway into the right hand
bay, left. Central bay has wide ground floor window, nearly as wide first floor
window and square attic window to the gable. Wings left -and right have blind front
windows. Over the central ground floor window the name Belvedere is inscribed in
relief (similar plaque to Floyd in the rear gable).
Except for the C20 window to the first floor of the front, all the windows are old 1,
2 or 3 light casements with glazing bars, and those to the principal rooms have
transoms. The pantry window (gable end left) has louvres to the side lights.
Interior not inspected.
An interesting house resembling a C19 estate lodge but larger, and cunningly
retaining the earlier house to create an harmonious group.
