Millaton House



Country house. Circa mid C19. Internal plan altered in [ate C20. Stuccoed walls with rusticated quoins. Shallow pitched hipped slate roof behind plain parapet with modillion cornice. Numerous rendered brick stacks to main block and rear wings.
Plan of central block with a rear wing at either end. The internal room arrangement has been somewhat altered by the conversion of the house in the late C20 into a home for the elderly. However its basic form appears to have consisted of a stairhall to the left of the main block with a principal room to its left which extended back along the garden front to the left, and a small room immediately to the right of the stairhall and beyond that another large reception room. The 2 rear wings presumably housed the service rooms and servant's accommodation, the right-hand wing contains a secondary staircase.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 6-window front except that the porch is in the second bay from the left-hand end. IstfloorwindowsareCl9horned2-panesasheswithoutglazingbars.

The left-hand front overlooks the garden and has a similar 3-window front. The 2 rear wings form a courtyard.
