7/114 No.47 (Barleybat Hall)

- II

Large house, circa 1820, coloured brick in Flemish bond with stone
dressing and slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays, double depth plan.
Projecting stone plinth. 6-panel door in heavy face-carved frame
flanked by narrow wing-lights with glazing bars. The opening is
framed by plain engaged columns with simple carved caps, and dosserets
which flank an eliptical radial bar fanlight; this is surmounted by
an open pediment. The outer bays are two storey brick bows each with
three sashes, which have glazing bars. The sashes sit on stone sill
bands, are flanked by plain pilasters and separated by simple
Doric-style columns. There are moulded stone corbels supporting the
sill band below all pilasters and columns. The windows are surmounted
by plain friezes and lead covered moulded cornices. There is a single
recessed sash, at first floor level, over the front entrance. There
are 3-light flush casements in the LH (east) side wall and recessed
sashes, with glazing bars, in the west wall. A lead covered blocking
course surmounts the first floor window (eaves) cornice. The front
roof has lead covered hips and the twin gables to the rear have barge
boards. Timber gutters and plain stacks to the side walls. A full
width single storey addition at the rear is of no special interest.
Internally: The Entrance Hall has a full width screen with panelled
wings and pilasters, surmounted by a radial bar fanlight, but the
double doors are missing. The windows of the north-east room have
panelled shutters and are flanked by reeded pilasters. The marble
mantel has a cornice and a chimney-piece consisting of a mirror
supported by Greek Ionic columns. The north-west room has a Georgian
wooden mantel with chimney-piece supported on six balusters; this has
four small niches and a deep cornice. Moulded ceiling cornice. A
geometrical staircase with curtail step, oak treads, cut and bracketed
string, square balusters and rosewood wreathed handrail. The
north-east and north-west rooms at first floor level have Georgian
mantels and moulded ceiling cornices. There are a number of six-panel
doors at ground and first floor level.
