King's Newton House
and Attached Gates
and Outbuildings
House and attached gates and outbuildings. C17, altered and
extended in early C19 with minor later alterations. Rendered
stone with deep stone plinth and hipped slate roof with wide
eaves, rendered side wall stacks, and a large rendered ridge
stack. Three storeys and three bays, plus large rear addition.
Main elevation has a central early C19 bow window with C20
casements, flanked by glazing bar sashes, that to east slightly
larger than the other. Below the western sash there is a
blocked 2-light recessed and chamfered mullion basement window
and between this and the central bow, there is a dip in the
plinth and the shadowy evidence of a pedimented doorcase. Above
there are three glazing bar sashes and above again there are
three similar smaller windows. This storey was probably added
in the early C19 as there is a line in the render at sill level.
East side of house has an early C19 semi-circular headed
doorcase with panelled door, traceried fanlight and a long
barrel vaulted porch roof above. Rear elevation has long two
storey addition to west with 3-light casements to ground floor
and glazing bar sashes above. East side of this elevation has a
range of early C19 outbuildings with semi-circular headed doors.
One part has a working cheese press and the other has a bread
oven and soft water pump. Attached to the east side of these
outbuildings is an attractive brick wall with a wide depressed
segmental gauged brick arch. Also attached to the east side of
the house is a rendered curved stone wall with a pair of large
gate piers. These have stipled bases and tooled rustication
with pyramidal coping stones to top. Interior has a late C17
dogleg staircase with turned balusters, moulded handrail and
ball finials to newel posts. The ground floor has an early C19
character with reeded cornices, semi-circular headed doorcases
with flush doors and Hopton Wood marble paving in the hall.
There is one C18 fireplace in one of the bedrooms and there is a
tiny winder staircase to south side of the large stack.
