WM 28 SW
1/139 Instead Manor House
- ( formerly listed as
29.7.55 Instead Manor Farm House)
-- II

Manor farmhouse. C16 range to east with 2 adjoining early C17 wings to west,
forming L-shape plan. Timber framed and plastered; roofs mainly clad with
black pantiles, some glazed; plaintiles to the front of the southernmost C17
wing which faces the road. 2 storeys and attics. To the south a range of 5
flush-frame sash windows with glazing bars. To the east the earlier range has
sash windows on the ground floor and on the upper floor 2 good projecting C17
ovolo-moulded windows of 5 lights (one with a transom) and an early C18 cross
window with old square-leaded panes. The 2 C17 wings have matching 3-light
gable windows with dentilled heads; these gables had drop finials, one of
which survives. Rising from the C17 wing is a fine stack: there are 4
octagonal shafts with star caps, the 2 shafts at the front enriched with
moulded brick. The earlier range has an external stack set against the west
wall. The interior, which once contained some good panelled rooms, is now
somewhat modernised. The northern of the 2 C17 wings contains a good early
C17 closed-string stair with turned balusters and square or oblong newel posts
with finials; this stair does not appear to be original to the house. On the
former outside wall of this wing (now within a C19 addition) there is a
section of incised pargetting with a running design of foliage. One bedroom
has a C17 overmantel with fluted columns and 2 arched panels with later oil
paintings of flowers in vases. Some C17 panelling has been placed in the C19
entrance lobby. A number of good early C17 9-panel studded doors. Above the
lintol of a ground floor fireplace a section of a carved beam with Tudor rose
and the date 1603.
