20-AUG-65 Wellingham House


Private house. Built about 1800 on the site of an earlier building, for the Rickman family; extensively remodelled 1955-71 for Ian Askew by Raymond Erith. Red brick, tile and timber, hipped slate roof, with large stacks and dormers. Two storeys and attics. Three windows facing east, 2 windows facing north and south. Wide eaves bracket cornice. Sash windows with glazing bars. Porch with Doric columns and pediment. Round-headed doorway with semi-circular fanlight. The south front was remodelled by Erith to incorporate a wing which had been a later addition to the original house. Part of this was pulled down in 1955 in order to build the library, which was approached through a new octagonal ante-room (decorated with Chinese wallpaper brought from Panshanger). In 1960 Erith added two new wings at the front of the house, which were clad in wood and painted to look like stone; single storey. Centre portion of each wing projects with pediment over, with two round-arched windows either side of central niche, and with central stack over. These provided larger drawing and dining rooms, in respectively a C18 and c.1830 style. Trellised verandah added to older part of south-west front as part of this scheme. First-floor dining room added in 1971, tile hung; conservatory and the trellis outside the library also of this date.
