Warfleet House)

GV II

Ballroom and billiard room, now converted to a house.
c1860-1880. Plastered stone rubble with Bathstone dressings;
stacks have plastered brick chimneyshafts with rendered
cornices and some old pots; roof hidden by parapet.
PLAN: Large one-room building close by the south end of
Warfleet House (qv) to which it originally belonged. Entrance
porch on the right (north) end with stair turret behind it,
off an entrance lobby to that end of the main block. Small
ante-room at the other end, now with secondary external door.
Main room has now been divided into bedrooms. Rear service
block.
EXTERIOR: Castellated Tudor Gothic style. 2 storeys.
Symmetrical 3-window front, stone-mullioned with cinquefoil
heads and sunken spandrels. Canted bay ground-floor centre
with 3 forward lights and embattled parapet and flanked by
lancets with Tudor-style hoodmoulds. First floor has central
lancet flanked by 3-light windows, all with hoodmoulds.
Moulded string courses at first-floor, first-floor
window-sill, and eaves levels. Castellated parapet hides the
roof. Same style on end walls. Porch has 2-light front window.
Cranked-arch doorway in the end, with moulded surround and
hoodmould, contains fielded-panel double doors under an
overlight of leaded glass. Stair turret with front lancet and
end 3-light window. Ground-floor windows contain a Tudor
pattern of leaded glass. Doorway from first-floor level to the
roof of the porch contains a one-panel door with coverstrips
(similar doors inside). This and a fixed ladder from here up
to the upper roof indicate that the roofs were also used as a
viewing platform.
INTERIOR: Sumptuous high-quality craftsmanship continuing the
Tudor theme, particularly to the ground floor and the
staircase. The main room has exposed beams and joists, the
beams with richly-carved soffits. Room dominated by the
massive back-lit inglenook fireplace. Hearth with good
cast-iron sides and dogs. Impressive overmantel, supported on
paired Corinthian columns, is a riot of carved decoration;
heraldic centre panels, flanking caryatids and delicate
friezes packed with ornament. Porch lined with oak panelling,
carved in the same style as the panelling in the entrance hall
at Warfleet House. Panelled stair turret containing large
open-well stair, open string, panelled newel posts with reeded
decoration, some full-height, others with carved heraldic
beasts as finials, carved balusters and handrail. Stair
windows with good colourful heraldic stained glass. First
floor not inspected.
Originally part of Warfleet House (qv).
