English Heritage Listing
Late C18 house in grounds. Brown brick. 2 storeys and basement, 5 double-hung sashes. Door, window surrounds and plaques said by the owner to be from Foley House in Langtham Place.
11 stone steps and wrought iron railing up to semi-circular arched doorway with fine wood surround: Roman Doric pilasters and entablature with acanthus leaf frieze, modillion cornice and central carving in high relief of an eagle with spread wings; panels either side of door with consoles supporting archivolt and varved keystones; fanlight, 6 fielded panel door.
Ground floor windows have wood surrounds with carved consoles supporting entablature; reeded frieze with carved ram’s head at each end above console. 1st floor windows have wood architraves and carved keystones of ram’s heads and swags. 2nd floor windows have architraves and flat arches. 2 circular carved plaques at 1st floor level, 4 oval carved plaques at 2nd floor level.
Parapet with 4 stone vases. Fine wrought iron gates with brick piers surmounted by stone vases. 2 other sets of entrance piers with vases.
Interior – ground and 1st floor rooms contain very fine imported panelling, mantelpieces etc of various periods, but the permanence of these additions is uncertain as the owner specializes in the sale of “period rooms” and antique garden ornaments. The former stable block to the left has had Tudor archways and windows grafted on to a basically Georgian design as a result of the Owner’s occupation. The house was lived in at one time by the novelist [George] Manville Fenn.
