Horndon House and stable block
(Formerly Listed as:
(East side)


House, now partly divided into flats. Later C17 with C18 and
C19 rear extensions. Timber-framed and rendered; C20 comb
pargeting to the upper storey. Plaintiled roof with a wide
eaves overhang and plaster cornice; C19 pierced and fluted
bargeboards and spike finials. 2 red brick chimney-stacks on
the original rear wall have high rectangular shafts and
corbelled heads.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, attics and cellar, 5 window range,
arranged 2:1:2 with the centre breaking forward slightly:
12-pane sashes with heavy ovolo-moulded glazing-bars in flush
cased frames to the upper storey, and with a single vertical
glazing-bar to the ground storey. A raised stucco band runs
between the storeys. 3 hipped dormers with cornices have
small-paned sliding sashes. The central 6-panelled door in a
plain wood surround has a rectangular fanlight with arched
Gothick glazing-bars.
In the south gable the 1st-storey and attic sash windows have
C19 hood-moulds. At the back, a timber-framed and rendered
extension on the right has fluted bargeboards to the gable and
a canted bay to the upper storey with a steep tiled roof and
sash windows. On the left, a 2-storey C19 extension in white
brick has 2 sash windows to the upper storey with vertical
glazing-bars only.
A later C19 single-storey white brick range extending from the
south end of the house has a shallow-pitched slate roof and a
plain modillion eaves cornice. 6 window range: sashes with a
single vertical glazing bar in plain reveals with flat red
brick arches and stone sills.
A change in the brickwork between the 3rd and 4th windows
shows that the range was built in 2 phases. It was originally
used as a doctor's consulting room, but is now a separate
house. Horndon House was lived in from 1870 by 4 generations
of doctors and is still in the same family ownership.
INTERIOR: the cellar, below one room only, is lined with stone
blocks along 2 walls. The decoration of the main range of the

house is typical of high quality later C17 work. On each side
of the entrance the ground storey rooms are fully panelled,
with moulded cornices. Most doors are original 6-panel with
bolection-moulded surrounds and several corner fireplaces have
bolection mouldings. The entry hall contains a very fine open
well stair with barley-sugar twist balusters, square newel
posts, moulded handrail and panelled dado.
Stable Block: linked to the house on the south east. Early
C19. Formerly with stabling for 4 horses; the fittings for 3
stalls survive. The front (east) wall of the stable is in
white brick; other walls in a mixture of red brick, stone and
random flint. The south gable is built into the boundary wall.
Slate roof. A wide segmental-arched doorway has a fanlight
with radiating glazing bars and a lunette on each side.
