Details

1. LONGCOT MALLINS LANE Longcot House

SU 29 SE 2/19 21.11.66

II*

2. Circa 1703 as recorded on a datestone now lost with an early C19 SE front. Rubble stone and courses of squared and dressed chalk with brick dressings and chalk quoins and cement render to the C19 front. Hipped stone tiled roofs to NE, SE and SW fronts, 2 gabled ends to NW front with a valley between and cement render and brick stacks. 2 storey, 5 bay SE front with 6 and 3 pane sashes to upper floor and 6 pane sashes to ground floor. Centrally placed pseudo Tuscan Doric porch with roundels on the entablature and a 6 panel door with side panels and a semi-circular fanlight of Bloomsbury type. The principal front was originally on the SW which has a coved cornice and 2 six pane sashes to the upper floor and a 3 light 6 pane casement with 2 light upper panes on the ground floor. One storey and attic, 4 bay range to the NE of squared and dressed chalk and brick dressings with a gabled machine tiled roof and on its SE front at the junction with the main block, a polygonal bay. Inside the Regency addition comprises a staircase hall and on either side a dining room and a drawing room and bedroms above. The staircase is cantilevered and gives access to a landing. It has an elm rail, plain squared banisters and carved tread-ends. The doors to all rooms have reeded surrounds with stopped roundels similar to those on the porch, and fanlights of the same design as that above the front door light the passages that connect the Regency addition to the older block on the ground floor and on the landing. All the early Cl9 rooms are panelled up to dado level and around the windows and the landing window has candle holders projecting from its architrave. The decorative scheme is all of a piece and surprisingly well preserved but it does have the undeniable stamp of the pattern book. The SE bedroom has an original Regency chimneypiece and there is a C17 chimneypiece in the SW bedroom of the C17 section.
