7/115 Sholebroke Lodge


Country house. c.1807, probably by James Morgan for Honorable Charles Fitzroy,
extended mid C19. Probably brick with unpainted rendering incised with masonry
patterns, hipped slate roofs, rendered internal stacks. L-plan, extended round
inner hall. 3-storey, 6-window range. Principal front to south has glazed garden
door to left of centre, a plate glass sash window to right. 3-bay bow rising
full height to far left, with tall 12-pane sashes to ground floor, a projecting
bay to far right with tripartite sash window to ground floor, 12-pane sashes to
first floor, 6-pane sashes to attic floor. Plinth and deep bracketted eaves.
Left garden elevation has tripartite sash windows to ground floor, one in
single-storey bay window. Entrance front to north has single-storey porch with
round-headed doorway with imposts, 4-panel double-leaf doors, overlight and
keyblock and moulded timber eaves and pediment. 2-storey service range to left
of porch with clerestory windows lighting inner hall behind. Interior has
impressive top-lit inner staircase hall with cantilevered timber stair rising
round sides, with turned balusters. Some original veined grey marble
chimneypieces. Formerly residence of deputy warden or lieutenant of the
Whittlebury Forest. James Morgan was John Nash's assistant as architect to the
Department of Woods and Forests. He exibited at the Royal Academy in 1807 his
'Design for rebuilding Sholebroke Lodge, Whittlebury Forest'. This house was
rebuilt at this time and an attribution to Morgan seems likely.
