SX8399 Holland House


Shown on OS map as Park.
House, now institution. 1840 (information from the occupier).
Roughcast stone rubble; tarred slate roof; chimneys with
rendered octagonal shafts with some old pots. Plan: double
depth with central entrance and rear kitchen wing roofed at
right angles.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Painted stuccoed quoins; roof with deep
eaves; mostly original windows. Asymmetrical 3 window front
with the gable ends of 2 wings to right and left and the porch
set back between them. Painted qouins to first floor windows.
Gothic Revival embattled porch with offset diagonal buttresses
and a Tudor-arched chamfered outer doorway, Tudor arched
window in left return. Above the porch a 2-light small-pane
timber casement. The left hand gable has one ground and one
first floor 12-pane sash, similar first floor window to the
right hand gable. Ground floor right is a canted bay with a
plain parapet with a moulded string below. Windows glazed with
12-pane sash in the centre, 8-pane in the outer lights. The
right return continues in the same style and includes a tall
stair window, cut across by the stair and glazed with a small
pane sash, some glazing bars missing. French windows with low
panels and an overlight with glazing bars are also probably
original. The left return has an introduced C20 French window
but the other 16-pane sashes are original. Rear elevation has
a brick lean-to for additional service rooms beyond (north of)
the kitchen wing.
Interior: Features of interest include chimney-pieces, plaster
cornices, a stick baluster stair with a mahogany handrail and
newels (parts of balustrade renewed) and original paved floors
to some of the rear service rooms.
