- II
Farmhouse. Early C17 main range to rear with probably C16 cross wing; the
front range was added c.1770, perhaps by Sir Robert Taylor, to form a double
pile plan. Timber framed and plastered; plaintiled roofs except north slope
of the cross wing which is pantiled. 2 storeys, with an attic to the rear
range. The main facade faces south towards Heveningham Hall, and was designed
to improve the view from that building: 7 windows, arranged symmetrically
2:3:2, the centre brought forward in the form of a canted bay; sash windows
with glazing bars in flush frames, moulded architraves and cornices. Good
doorway with partly glazed door, semi-circular fanlight with ornamental
glazing bars and raised key above; 2 threequarter-attached Composite columns
carry a broken pediment with modillions. Wooden eaves modillion cornice;
there was originally a flat parapet, now removed. To the rear is a flat-
roofed staircase extension of c.1770 with a fine Venetian window; internally
the window has fluted pilasters and a frieze with paterae. Immediately to the
right of the staircase addition is a doorway with 6-panel door and rectangular
fanlight. There is a good well staircase with slender turned balusters and
carved ends to the treads; against the wall is a half handrail supported by
pilasters. Simple moulded plaster cornices to main rooms of front range. The
rear range has newel stairs (now partly disused) and an arched brick fireplace
on the first floor; some good exposed framing, especially to the cross wing
which originally extended further to the west. Sandon, Suffolk Houses, 1977,
