9/117 Cedar Lodge
Substantial house. Possibly originally mid C18, re-modelled late C18 and
extended C19. Limestone and marlstone rubble with some wooden lintels;
Stonesfield-slate and Welsh-slate roofs with brick stacks. Double-depth plan
with service ranges. 2 storeys plus attic. Entrance front has a symmetrical
window arrangement of 16-pane sashes with brick jambs and wooden lintels, and
has a central 6-panel door with marlstone jambs and a C18 flat canopy with
panelled soffit and shaped brackets, to extreme right a rubble projection with a
similar window has been added, probably to contain a stair. Symmetrical 3-window
garden front, stuccoed over limestone rubble, has a more elaborate entrance
canopy with dentil decoration below round window; outer bays have architraved
tripartite sashes. Two-span roof has end stacks in both sections but is of
unequal spans. A late-C18/early-C19 hipped-roofed Welsh-slated range, running at
right angles to the house, has a 3-window front with leaded 2-liqht casements at
first floor, and lower windows with ornamental cast-iron grilles flanking the
6-panel door; it has been joined to the right end of the main range by a C19
marlstone linking section, altered C20. Interior: some late-C18 panelled doors
and shutters. For many years the hone of the novelist, Iris Murdoch.
