Country house, later used as hotel. Circa mid C18, extended and remodelled in 1878 for
Colonel H. Atherley and again in 1906. Random stone rubble with freestone dressings; south
range has Flemish bond red brick front and ashlar gable ends; 1906 wing is of ashlar. Plain clay
tile roof with stone coped gable ends. Stone axial stacks with grouped diagonal shafts. PLAN:
The south garden front range is the C18 house with a central entrance. In 1878 the house was
greatly enlarged by a large Jacobethan style range on the north with its main entrance on the
east side and extensive service wings to the north. Remodelled in 1906 when the central
atrium-like hall and staircase were installed and a guest wing was built on the west side.
INTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic. Asymmetrical east front, gabled to left and right, the left the
C18 gable-end of the C18 range with blind windows and stone in gable inscribed H.A.1878,
two projecting gables on right and service wings beyond that, to right [north]; moulded stone
mullion-transom windows; doorway to left of centre with large ashlar porch in the form a
triumphal arch. C18 brick south front has platband and stone quoins; 2:1:2 bays, ground floor
4-pane sashes with flat arches, first floor 12-pane sashes with cambered arches, central doorway
now a 4-pane sash window. On west side the ashlar 1906 wing with symmetrical south front
with moulded stone cornice, arcaded loggia flanked by oculae and four sashes above with
nowy-headed tablet at centre inscribed H.A.E. AD 1906; gabled at rear. INTERIOR is largely
the result of the 1906 remodelling with much Neo-Georgian joinery; the principal feature, the
galleried atrium-like central hall with its two tiers of colonnades, Tuscan and above Composite
and a broad open-well staircase with a heavy balustrade. The two south rooms have circa early
C20 marble chimneypieces. Various carved wood chimneypieces, one in former billiard room
with overmantel flanked by twisted balusters, probably re-used from the staircase of the C18.
The 1906 wing has some bolection moulded joinery and an axial corridor on the first floor with
a plaster barrel vault. HISTORY: Landguard is mentioned in The Domesday Book. Queen
Victoria is reputed to have visited the Atherleys at Landguard, when she was staying at Osborne.
