coping and ball finials at ridge. Between the two gables the stump of a wall
which has projected forward, with the moulded jamb of a first-floor opening.
First bay has on each floor a 16-pane sash window; projecting bay has a ground-
floor C20 part-glazed door, a first-floor 3-light double-chamfered mullion win-
dow with ogee-section hood mould and shaped kneelers to gable; 3rd and 4th bays
(the hall); on ground floor a single-light and a 3-light double-chamfered
mullion window under continuous hood mould, and a matching single-light window
with hood mould; on the first floor a 2-light matching window with hood mould,
and an inserted single-light window. Coping to right. Further to right, the
house includes 2 bays of a range added in 1890
Rear: massive stepped external stack to hall fireplace, with 3 diagonally-set
chimneys; windows C18 and later; pantile roof. Interior: hall fireplace has
ashlar chamfered segmental arch, flue open to two chimneys; hall has stop-
chamfered oak beams; cloakroom has reused oak door of 5 fielded panels and
L-hinges; parlour at left end has ashlar fireplace with triangular-headed ovolo

dow in projecting bay has in centre light, C17 painted glass by Henry Gyles of
York (1645-1709), it is an early work by Gyles, and has the arms of the Bellasis
family (of Newburgh Priory) above those of Paulet in an architectural canopy
(Brighton, p.47); two first-floor timber-framed partitions with moulded vertical
studs, segmental-arched doorway and an upright post, jowelled at the top, which
continues up from the ground-floor hall. The name of the building comes from
the Colville family who were given the manor of Coxwold after the Norman
Conquest; and retained it until the mid C15. About 1608, the manor house was
bought by Sir Henry Bellasis of Newburgh Priory (qv) who probably built the
present house (VCH ii, p.9). Photos in XNMR.
