2/76 Lostford Hall

Farmhouse. Late C17 and early to mid-C18, incorporating probably earlier
core. Late C20 alterations. Red brick (C17 English bond) with C17
grey sandstone ashlar dressings. 2-span plain tile roof. 2 cell
baffle-entry plan. 2 storeys over basement. South front: plinth,
flush quoins to right, toothed brick string course, toothed-brick eaves
cornice and parapeted gable ends with stone copings (moulded to right)
and moulded stone kneelers. Roughly central brick ridge stack. 2-
window front; C19 three-light wooden casements. Roughly-central
blocked small segmental-headed first-floor window with C20 stone
tympanum. Ground-floor C20 metal French casements to right flanked by
(and partly obscuring to left ) a pair of blocked C17 segmental-headed
windows with C20 stone tympana. C18 brick porch just off-centre to
left; parapeted gable with stone coping and moulded stone kneelers;
6-panelled door (upper 4 panels glazed) with moulded architrave and
depressed-arched radial fanlight. Nail-studded boarded basement door
at rear. Kitchen wing adjoining to north-west with reused timber
framing at rear, refronted in C20 brick. 2 storeys with lateral stack
at rear. Interior of house: left-hand ground-floor front room with
pair of chamfered ceiling beams and large open fireplace with chamfered
wooden lintel. First-floor chamfered beams. Late C17 staircase at
rear: dog-leg with winders; closed string with cyma recta moulding,
barleysugar twisted balusters, moulded handrail and square newel posts.
The house appears to have begun as a one-cell end lobby-entry plan
building (see beams and fireplace) which was extended to the east in the
late C17. The earlier part (probably timber framed) then appears to
have been rebuilt in brick in the C18 (see straight joint to right of
porch between English bond and Flemish bond brickwork).
