Brook House
SX7861 - SX7961

House. Circa 1830s with minor C20 alterations. Stone rubble clad in
whitewashed slate hanging; the ground storey of the front is stuccoed.
Bitumen-coated low-pitched hipped slate roof with paved brackets to deep
eaves soffit; and with moulded cast-iron gutters with lion head marks to
the joints; the roof is a single span across the front and at right angles
at the rear 2 parallel spaces. 2 rendered axial chimney stacks with
octagonal moulded chimney pots, the left hand pots have been removed.
Plan: Double depth almost square plan with 2 principal front rooms and a
wide central entrance hall the full depth of the house with stairs at the
rear; small service rooms behind the right hand room; and probably the
kitchen behind the left hand, room with a narrow service wing with
outhouses projecting at the rear of the kitchen. In early C20 a small
single storey wing was added to the right side, and a bay window added to
the left side enlarging the front left room.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 2:1:2 bays, the outer windows closer
spaced. First floor: 5 original 12-pane sashes. The ground floor: 4 tall
French casements with glazing bars and top lights. Central doorway with
original 6-panel door flanked by thin wooden pilasters and side lights
panelled below, and with a wide rectangular fanlight over with diagonally
crossed glazing bars. Across the whole ground storey a verandah with felt-
clad tented roof supported on 6 thin iron posts, around each post wooden
trellis spiral.
The left hand return has 3 first floor 12-pane sashes and a C20 single
storey wing against the ground storey.
The rear elevation has an asymmetrical arrangement of 12-pane sashes and a
larger 15-pane stair sash to left of centre.
The narrow service wing to right has a lower roof level, sash window and a
plank door to the outhouse.
Interior: The original plan is intact and much of the internal joinery
survives including moulded plaster ceiling cornices but the chimneypieces
in the 2 front rooms have been replaced with C20 Adam style chimneypieces
and the original stairs have been replaced by a C20 one with a Chippendale
type of balustrade with square newels. The first floor was not inspected.
