Fyling Old Hall and
6.10.69 garden walls to east

- II
House of medieval origin, largely reconstructed in 1629 by Sir Hugh Cholmley;
east front refaced and most windows altered in early C19 when the house was
adapted to farm use. Stone now pebbledashed except for plinth with chamfered
coping on north, south and west faces. Roof of synthetic tiles with stone
copings, kneelers and stacks. 2½ storeys, 3 bays internally but disguised by
early C19 remodelling; with small, square tower-like structure linked to south-
west corner. South (entrance) front 1 wide gabled bay to road. Left recessed
doorway with glazed door. Old double-chamfered doorway at right now holds
window. On first floor a 4-light ovolo-moulded mullioned and transomed window.
Above this a second-floor fireplace projection and an oculus painted troupe
l'oeil above. Left projecting 1-bay tower, linked at corner, is blank on road
front except for chimney breast. Inner return shows elliptical carriage arch
with glazing and door inserted; small windows on each floor above. Between, an
extruded first-floor winder stair, on steep corbel, leads to attic storey,
(which has been reduced in height and converted to granary when the Old Hall
became a farmhouse). Pyramidal tower roof with ball finial and corner chimney.
Left return of tower has one ovolo-moulded and one chamfered first-floor single
light; other windows modern. Right return of house is remodelled garden front;
1 wide bay at left and 3 bays arranged symmetrically at right. This part has
central door of 2 fancy panels, with patterned overlight, in keyed raised
surround with outer alternating block jambs, frieze and hoodmould on diamond
stops. 16-pane sashes on lower floor, 8-pane to attic storey, all in flat keyed
surrounds, those on ground floor with ears and feet. Cill bands and alternating
quoins. Ridged gable copings and curved kneelers. Triple corniced stacks at
ends and on ridge. North gable end shows a large 3-light ovolo-moulded,
mullioned and transomed first-floor window, similar to that at south end and
indicating superior status of early C17 first floor; this window blocked and
paitned trouple l'oeil; blocked oculus above and small 2-light chamfered
mullioned window below. Flanking later 2-light windows, trouple l'oeil at
left. On both floors, hoodmoulds raised in centre. Rear (west) elevation shows
its 3-bay form more clearly, although it has early C19 glazing-bar sashes on
upper floors and a few modern openings. External stone stair to glazed door at
right. Internal spaces altered and reduced by later partitions. Fireplaces
remain from both periods, the older with flattened Tudor-arched openings, the
latter with reeded jambs and frieze and angle paterae. Wall round three sides
of garden to east probably early C19; coursed stone with sloped coping, high on
south side and sloped up to higher part near house. 2 gate piers with swept
caps, on north side near house, hold wrought-iron gate. Boarded door under
extruded keyed lintel in north wall. Small outbuildings behind wall to south
east are not of special interest. Houses of the North York Moors,RCHM 1987, p
209 and passim.
