SD 57 SE
4/27 Poole House (formerly listed as
4-10-1967 Poole House and Poole Cottage)


House, 1674, with C19th alterations and extensions in keeping. Sandstone
rubble with slate roof. 2 storeys. Windows rebated and chamfered with
mullions and with drip courses over each storey. On the 1st floor of the
original part of the house are 3 of 2 lights, with one of 3 lights at the
left. On the ground floor are 2 of 2 lights, with a 2-light flush
chamfered mullioned window, probably C19th, at the left. To its left a
fire window has been removed. There is other evidence of rebuilding which
suggests that the fenestration may have been re-arranged. To the right of
the left-hand window is a door with architrave and a lintel carved with
rosettes, antlers, and 'ICE [John and Esther Cort] 1674'. The lintel may
have been partly re-cut. Between the 2 other windows on the ground floor
is a door with plain reveals. At the left is a 2-bay extension which has
2-light windows on the 1st floor similar to those to the main house and
2-light flush chamfered mullioned windows on the ground floor. Between
bays is a door with plain reveals. Above is a plaque inscribed: 'FPP
1860.' Chimneys on gables, the right-hand one with projecting stack,
between main house and extension, and to right of main house door. All
have diagonally-set square caps. The left-hand return wall has a wide
coach house entrance with segmental arch. Interior has a shouldered
fireplace of C18th type, a firehood bressumer, spice cupboard, and a stair
in the rear wing with turned balusters.
