Kingsley Hall

GV II*

House, now offices. Dated 1706, restored late C19. Brick-clad
timber-frame with limestone dressings, brick end stack and
paired hipped pantile roofs. Double-depth plan. Early Georgian
style. 3 storeys; 4-window range.
The ground floor is set back beneath the overhanging upper
storeys, supported on five 3/4 columns with flared capitals
and cast pedestals, and projecting one window's depth above
the pavement: above a moulded timber beam, Flemish-bond brick
with yellow headers and red stretchers, rusticated quoins to a
cornice, first-floor drip, and C20 parapet. C19 shop front has
half-glazed doors with margin- and overlights, and windows
with glazing bars; upper windows have brick arches with keys
above bolection-moulded architraves to 6/6-pane horned sashes.
In the middle below the drip is a panel inscribed 1706.
INTERIOR: largely remodelled mid C20; dogleg stair with
quarter landings and turned balusters. The only Bristol
example of a style of urban architecture more common in SW
towns such as the Butterwalks in Dartmouth and Totnes.
