Description

Probably later 18th century. 2-storey house, made T-plan by
addition in earlier 19th century of 2-storey wing to N.
Sited on falling ground. Unfortunate bull-face render
to earlier house and E elevation of the later; remaining
elevations harled. Earlier house possibly raised.
S range in 19th century. Basement area created by higher
roadway to S with oversailing bridge adjoined to gabled porch
at centre; fanlit door. 2 irregularly grouped bays each
side with some windows enlarged. Gable head windows,
currently boarded, to E and W gables.
N WING: adjoined to S range at centre. 3 widely spaced,
sizeable 1st floor windows to E and W elevations, irregularly
grouped, with smaller windows at ground floor and
additional doorway to W elevation. Full-height canted bay
to N gable with large 1st floor windows and blocking course.
Variety of glazing patterns, including diamond-pane porch
lights to earlier house. Small-pane sash and case windows
to later wing, 12-pane at 1st floor. Brick gable end
stacks to S range, paired at E gable; gable end and wallhead
stacks to N wing. Decorative ironwork brackets to S elevation.
GATEPIERS AND PARAPET: square ashlar pyramid capped gatepiers,
with those by doorway incised "Innerwick" and "House"
respectively.

Statement of Interest

Allegedly the 19th century work was prompted out of

rivalry between the Thurston and Biel estates at opposite

ends of the village, Innerwick House belonging to the

latter estate. The earlier house with steep gable pitch

and 5-bay S elevation, would have been more imposing before

the detrimental 19th century work.
