II
House with attached outbuildings, unoccupied and secured against entry at the time of inspection (October 2007.) c.1800 with late C19 alterations and additions. Red brick laid to Flemish bond on the principal elevation and set upon a low sandstone plinth. Ashlar sandstone dressings and copings. Deep timber eaves cornice, gable chimneys and slate roof covering laid to diminishing courses but partially replaced by C20 sheet materials.

PLAN: formal linear plan in imitation of a Palladian ensemble, the house placed centrally between two flanking pavilion-style outbuildings.

EXTERIOR: symmetrical composition of house and outbuildings, the house of three bays and two storeys, the two single storey outbuildings of matching proportions and detailing originally linked to the house by means of curved and ramped walling, now breached on both flanks. The house has a segmental-arched headed doorway, formerly set within a pedimented doorcase as indicated by the outline of the former doorcase. Flanking the doorway are window openings set beneath painted stone wedge lintels and with plain stone cills. The window openings are overboarded, and are believed to retain sash frames. At either end are the remains of flanking walls which originally linked the house and outbuildings. The left hand (north) wall retains curved ramping at its head. The surviving portion of the right-hand (south) wall is now incorporated within the front end wall of a lean-to built against the south gable of the house. The base of the former curved wall extends to the south outbuilding, which has a pediment to its front gable with ashlar copings. Below the pediment is a wide three-centre arched blind opening incorporating a shallow arched single doorway. The left-hand (north) wall is ramped at its head where it adjoins the house, and beyond a collapsed central section meets the north outbuilding. This is of matching proportions to the south outbuilding, but has a plain timber lintel above a double doorway, the lintel having replaced an earlier arched head. The rear of the house faces a hillside, and the only window opening is a tall arch-headed opening, now blocked, to the projecting stair tower with a curved rear wall. One of two lean-to additions survives to the north of the stair tower.

INTERIOR: not inspected, but believed to retain the original floor plan, much of the original stair and evidence of original decorative finishes.

HISTORY: Depicted on the 1883 Ordnance Survey, and identified as 'Cinnery'. The building formed part of the Stanton Estate in South Derbyshire.

* It is of a carefully-planned and distinctive design, with those elements which contribute to its special character and appearance being clearly identifiable.
* The grouping and detailing of the component elements of the building group to resemble a miniature Palladian ensemble is an unusual and rare manifestation of display architecture of the period.
