Original house built 1676-85 by Judge Jeffries. The present house by Benjamin
Ferrey, 1860-2, for the 12th Duke of Somerset. Red brick with some diaperwork
and stone dressings; slate roof. Two and 3 storeys. Entrance (N) facade:
Battlemented tower porch with a tall oriel window and a pyramidal roof flanked
by gabled bays, 3 on the left end 2 on the right. Forward of the extreme left
gable and with a 2-storeyed pyramidal capped polgonal turret in the corner is a
gabled 2-storey 4-bay block and, to the left of this again, is another gabled
one-storey 2-bay block. Forward of this yet again is the west side of the Outer
Court, entered through a Gothic arch with ducal crest in the gable and flanked
by railings. The other 3 sides of this court have an arcade of equal EE piers
with shaft rings. At the centre of the east side is a block with 2 gables and a
little turret between them. Against the roof of the north side a little pointed
polygonal turret. The south side of the Outer Court has a central low gabled
block with a little pointed polygonal turret and, on the right, a clock turret
with bell above. Through this block access to the Inner Court, a pictorially
less lively composition in whose east range, however, there is perhaps something
of the earlier building. Garden(s) facade: with a polygonal pointed capped
turret on the left and then 7 bays of which Nos 1, 4 and 7 are gabled. At
ground level a 6-bay veranda with coupled spirally-fluted columns each with 2
shaft rings. Interiors much remodelled in a neo-Georgian way by F C Eden in
late C19/early C20, but the principal staircase of wood is original as is the
vaulted and glazed hall with its iron railings and clusters of 4 twisted columns
with east-east capitals and shaft rings.
