Listing Text


873-1/4/653 (West side)
14/06/74 New Close Farmhouse and boundary
(Formerly Listed as:
New Close Farmhouse)
(Formerly Listed as:
Garden wall of New Close Farmhouse)


Farmhouse, now house. Late C18 and mid C19. Rubble exterior
walling to the street, rendered to S and E, slate roof. The
house, in 2 parts, is embraced by a tall boundary wall with
quadrant corner, possibly from an earlier building, or added
in the nature of a folly (see also Wyke Castle, qv, in the
same road).
The house front, which is rendered, is in 2 sections, each of
2 storeys, with 4-pane sashes. To the left is a low 1-window
section with mansard front slope containing a half-dormer to
an arched top, above a sah flanked by a door each side. To the
right, with a higher eaves and hipped roof, a 2-window range,
the upper sashes to arched heads; the return gable end has one
arched sash, a door, and a narrow gabled garage range. A small
brick stack to the left gable of the main range, and a further
stack to the lower range at the outer wall.
INTERIOR not inspected.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the boundary wall has a series of small
square openings to flush stone lintels over deep-set wood
casements; facing N is one such, to the right of a
stone-cheeked porch with stone umbrella-hood with finial, over
a plank door, with a later casement to its left. At the corner
the wall sweeps up to a full 2-storey height, with a stone
coping and 5 scattered small openings, plus a 2-light casement
and a blocked door. At the right-hand end the wall is stopped
to dressed quoins, then drops to a lower boundary wall.
