House. c.1900 by Detmar Blow, for Fairfax Cholmeley, with early C20 alterations
by Alfred Powell, and late C20 alterations by Martin Stancliffe. Random local
sandstone, pantile roofs. Irregular L-shaped plan, 2 storeys and loft. The
original Blow range faces south-west, and consisted on the ground floor of two
coach houses with stabling and a library, these converted by Powell into a
library; sitting-room and dining-room respectively, and an open 2-storey house-
place with a gallery at the north-west end and a large fireplace on the north-
east wall, the room having been divided below the gallery, and with first floor
bedrooms above the stables and library. A single-storey kitchen range to the
cast has-been demolished. Powell added on to the north-east of this main range
a corridor, entered by a 2-storey canted entrance bay at the west end, with a
spacious first-floor gallery above; also a north-west range at right angles with
a central archway through to the kitchen courtyard, the archway flanked by a
monument room tot he north, and service rooms to the south, with bedrooms and
bathrooms above; this range has been discreetly altered to form an entrance
hall, kitchen and granny flat. The windows have segmental arches and side-
sliding sashes and casements [the owner did not give permission for a full
description to be made, but it seems likely that little Blow detailing remains
externally.] Interior: photographs in Country Life illustrate open hall with
large fireplace and gallery. The house represented a statement of socialist
principles held by the patron, the local squire. The squat tapering chimney
stacks on this house and others in Brandsby village implies that the Cholmeleys
engaged either Blow or Powell to do other work for them. Country Life 22 May
1915, pp.2, 4, 6.
