Farmhouse and attached cottage. House of c.1745 for Francis Cholmeley; cottage
mid C19. Sandstone, ashlar to house, coursed and squared to cottage; pantile
roofs. House of 2 storeys with loft, 3 bays with lower 2-storey, l-bay cottage
to right. Warren House: plinth, first-floor band, eaves band; openings have
cantilevered lintels with projecting keystones; central door of 6 panels, the
upper 2 panels glazed, below 3-pane overlight; 16-pane sash windows, formerly
with external shutters; 2 cast-iron tie-rod plates below first-floor band and 2
wrought-iron tie-rod plates below eaves band; shaped kneelers; moulded ashlar
coping; two C20 roof windows; brick end stacks surmounting C19 ashlar lower
stacks. Warren Cottage: first-floor band; on each floor a 16-pane sash window
with flat arch above; kneeler, ashlar coping and brick end stack to right.
Rear: Warren House: window openings have same lintels, and small side-sliding
sashes survive on first floor. Left return: 2 loft windows. Bands do not
return around rear or sides. Interior: Warren House: ground-floor doors of 6
fielded panels; ground-floor room to right has large segmental-arched kitchen
fireplace with round-arched cupboard with door of 3 fielded panels to right;
first- and second-floor doors of 2 panels, some windows have panelled reveals;
turned-baluster dog-leg staircase continues up to loft; principal-rafter roof
trusses with queen struts on collar. Warren House was hastily rebuilt when
Francis Cholmeley married in 1745, so that his bride could be reasonably housed
while Brandsby Hall (qv) was completed, because his workmen had demolished far
more than he had intended, leaving only two rooms habitable. 'Brandsby Hall,
Yorkshire, part I', by John Cornforth, Country Life, January 2, 1969, p.20.
