4/159 Chilloman House including front
- garden walls
Small country house. Circa 1840 although fragmentary ruins of C16 house are
adjoining. The front built of large coursed blocks of grey-coloured chert ashlar
(slightly rock-faced), and the rest is snecked chert; Beerstone ashlar detail; stone
stacks with ashlar triple diagonally set chimneyshafts; slate roof.
Plan: L-plan house. The main block faces south-east. It has a 2-room plan, one
either side of the central cross-passage which leads back to the rear wing. Both
rooms have gable-end stacks. The right room is the parlour and the main stair rises
to rear of it from the back of the passage. The left room is the dining room.
Kitchen rear block projects at right angles to rear of the left room and it has a
large gable-end stack. Lower service block to rear of the kitchen and integral
dairy/pantry outshot in the angle of the 2 wings.
This is a single phase building of circa 1840 in Tudor Gothic style. However there
is, on-the right (north-east) end of the main block, the roofless ruin of the C16
hall containing the opposing doorways to the former through-passage.
The main house is 2 storeys with attics.
Exterior: tall symmetrical 3-window front. The outer bays break forward a short
distance from the main front. At ground floor level are tall 4-light hollow-
chamfered mullion-and-transom windows under a continuous hoodmould (which is carried
around the porch). First floor 3-light windows, all with hoodmoulds. Each bay is
gabled and contains a single light attic window. Both bays are gabled. There is a
stringcourse at eaves level which is carried round the bay gables, and a low parapet
with coping. All these windows contain iron-frames holding rectangular panes of
glass. The central doorway is a Todor arch containing a 6-panel door with fanlight
behind a gabled porch. Its outer Tudor arch has a moulded surround. The roof is
gable-ended with shaped kneelers and coping. The outer (south-western) side of the
rear block includes a secondary Tudor arch doorway and a large ovolo-moulded stone
mullioned window under a relieving arch. The other sides contain timber casements.
To right is the ruined outer walls of the C16 hall. The passage rear doorway
doorway contains an oak doorframe with a broad chamfered surround. The passage
front doorway is behind a roofless porch of C18 brick including some burnt headers.
Alongside the porch to right is a late C16 - early C17 Beerstone 4-light window with
ovolo-moulded mullions.
Interior: is well-preserved and contains nearly all the original (that is say circa
1840) joinery and other detail some of it in Tudor style. The kitchen fireplace,for
instance, is a large one built of stone, with rounded corners and chamfered
surround. Roof not inspected.
The front garden is enclosed by a low stone rubble wall. The front gate is flanked
by a square section ashlar gate posts with plain projecting cornice and low pyramid
caps. Along the right side it ramps up over an arch-headed doorway before it meets
the house.
