Swillington House

II

Two stable blocks, with linking screen walls, now partly dwellings. Early
C19 (Swillington House built 1804; Pevsner); altered. Sandstone ashlar,
slate roofs. Long rectangular ranges at right angles, forming the east and
north sides of a large courtyard (an earlier range on the south side not
included in the item). Both 2 storeys, the main range slightly higher,
symmetrical, in modified classical style, with bands, giant pilasters and
corner pilasters; and segmental heads to the bays between these; the main
range of 5 + 3 + 5 bays has banded corner pilasters, and a wider centre bay
with similar pilasters, arched doorways at ground floor now (1986) mostly
covered by a flat-roofed porch, segmental-headed tripartite windows at
1st floor; the outer bays have 16-pane sashed windows on both floors, those
at 1st floor also segmental-headed, except in the centre of the right-hand
part at ground floor, where there is a plain doorway. The north range, of 12
bays, has similar windows and doors mostly alternating at ground floor, all
with rectangular ventilating panel above, and low segmental-headed 8-pane
windows at 1st floor. Hipped roofs with projecting eaves.
