Country house, now divided into flats. 1777 for Christopher
Harris. Caen stone ashlar with plinth, mid-floor bands and
rusticated quoins; dry slate hipped roof with central valley
and with a moulded and modillion cornice; large ashlar stacks:
4 axial stacks and tall end stacks to wings.
PLAN: square double-depth plan plus flanking wings which
project to rear forming an overall U shape.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys plus 2-storey wings; symmetrical 5-window
front. Flat arches over original hornless sashes with glazing
bars, windows of upper floor much shorter. Central distyle
Roman Doric porch with triglyphs and triangular pediment;
glazed and panelled door. Rear is slightly asymmetrical having
a tall 1st-floor stair window and window above, left of centre
and segmental-arched pilastered porch right of centre.
INTERIOR: virtually complete where inspected except for
alterations of following its conversion. Fine stair hall with
open-well staircase with open string, ramped handrail over
turned balusters, column newels and panelled dado; Adam style
ceiling plaster above, otherwise cornices with fluted friezes
and Adam style chimneypieces surrounded by engraved tiles made
in Liverpool in the 1770s.
A very distinguished mid C18 house, the flanking blocks almost
lending it a Palladian air.
