06-APR-04 Dinton Lodge including front garden area railings
A late C19 house, which appears to incorporate a mid C18 house, constructed of Chilmark stone ashlar. The house has a Welsh slate roof, hipped and gabled ends and ashlar axial stacks with moulded cornices and yellow clay pots.
PLAN: It appears to be a small, mid C18 house, which was extended and remodelled in the late C19.
EXTERIOR: The two storey house has an asymmetrical 3-window south west front with 1-3-4- and 6-light moulded stone mullion windows with dripmoulds. To the left and right are projecting bays with curved gables with moulded copings, the right-hand bay being slightly wider. It has a central doorway with a gabled stone porch with a 4-centred arch doorway with flanking single-light windows. The south-east facade has 3-bays with a curved gable bay to left with wide 2-storey stone bow windows. The bay to the right has two four light stone mullion windows. The central recessed bay has an arched porch with a balcony with a stone balustrade above. An engraved date stone of 1896 is set in the porch with stones on either side engraved with the initials J.P.M. and O.S.M.P.M. The garden to the south-east is enclosed by decorative cast iron railings set on an ashlar plinth with terminal piers, stanchions and alternating spear head and looped shafts with top and bottom rails.
INTERIOR: Not inspected.
SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE: Dinton Lodge is a late C19 house which appears to incorporate sections of an earlier mid C18 house. Its distinctive and rather unusual architectural detailing makes it of special historic interest and as such it is part of a valuable group of buildings and makes a significant contribution to the historic character of Dinton.
