Description


STOURPORT ON SEVERN

SO8071SW ARELEY LANE, Areley Kings
589-1/7/81 (North side)
05/07/50 Areley Hall

II

Large house, formerly comprising a single dwelling with
Muxlowe House (q.v.). Substantially late C16, though with
extensive alterations c1820 and c1870. Largely timber-framed,
though with some brick additions, and roughcast rendered
throughout. Main front faces south, 2-storeyed with 3-storeyed
porch, 4 bays with a narrow additional section added to left
in late C19. Doorway to right, not in its original position,
with carved and studded door with round arched fanlight over.
It is located one bay to right of projecting full-height
gabled porch with exposed timbering in the gable apex, close
studding with decorative braces above the lower rail. This is
carried on C19 Doric columns, encasing earlier supports, which
also form the structure for a flat-roofed porch over the
present doorway. Windows are casements with mullions and
transoms beneath hoodmoulds, probably c1820. Large axial brick
stack between the 2 left-hand units. Projection beneath the
roughcast across the facade may be sill band of brick facing,
or possibly remains of timber jettying. Rear elevation
comprises 3 projecting gables of different heights and
periods. The outer 2 may be original - certainly the left hand
gable houses the staircase which is clearly integral to the
early timber framed construction - but all fenestration is
late C19 or early C20. There is a lower projecting wing beyond
to the left, probably partly C18, but extended by a further
bay early C20. Inside, the staircase and the roof stucture
suggest that substantial parts of the original structure
survive, though fire-places and other internal detail relate
to the C19 improvements.
