12/94 Old Walls including
outbuilding adjoining


House. Circa 1720, extended in C19. Rendered stone rubble with masonry
joint lining. Asbestos tile hipped roof. End and axial stacks with yellow
clay louvred pots.
Plan and development: The original early C18 house in the 3-room plan main
range with a stairwell between the central and left hand rooms. The left
hand room was the parlour heated from an end stack, the central room to the
right of the stairhall was the hall-kitchen heated from an axial stack on
its right side which also serves a fireplace heating the smaller kitchen at
the right hand end (possibly originally an unheated service room). In the
C19 a single storey kitchen wing was built on the front of the right end
with a service doorway on the left hand corner; this wing connected the
house to a traphouse and/or stables (with a loft above) on the lower road
level in front.
Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. 3:1 bay south front, the 3 left bays are
symmetrical. C18 and C19 12-pane sashes, those on the ground floor taller
15-pane sashes, all in exposed cases but 2 at the centre of the first floor
have C19 replacement sashes. Central doorway with original fielded 3-panel
door and C20 glazed outer door now enclosed within a large C20 conservatory
across the front.
On the right of the front a C19 single storey kitchen extension with 12-pane
sash on inner return and a monopitch slate roof. At lower (road) level in
front of kitchen wing a traphouse and/or stable with loft above, probably
C19, painted stone rubble with hipped slate roof, door on left hand side
with loft door above the wide entrance to road at front with a RSJ lintel.
Rear elevation inaccessible.
Interior: Most of the C18 joinery survives. The left hand ground floor
room has segmentally arched alcoves with fluted architrave and small late
C19 chimneypiece with moulded plaster segmental arch and C19 china cupboard
with flanking balusters and carved panel doors. Bath rooms have panelled
window shutters and C18 fielded 3-panel doors to hall, the right hand with
C19 reeded architrave. Over the doors there are small late C19 carved
canopies and small panels carved with rams heads. The dog-leg staircase has
good chinoiserie balustrade square newels with moulded caps and moulded rail
and string; C18 2-panel door to cupboard under the stair. First floor has
C18 fielded 2-panel doors, the left hand chamber has fielded dado panelling.
The right hand chamber has panelled cupboard doors.
Roof: Straight principals with halves, lapped and pegged collars and
staggered butt purlins over main section and over right hand end.
