SU 24 NE FYFIELD REDENHAM

3/2 Redenham House 20.12.60 II*

Country mansion in a parkland setting. Early C19. Stone walls to the 3 main facades, brick and render, with hipped slate roofing. A classical design of plain Greek style; square plan with a wing at the north side. Symmetrical south elevation, of Bath stone, of 2 storeys, 2.3.2. windows: parapet with moulded coping, with pineapple vases marking the corners and the ends of the slightly-projecting centrepiece: moulded cornice, moulded cell band to the 1st floor plinth. Sashes in reveals, the lower windows reaching to floor level. The symmetrical west (entrance) elevation, of 2 storeys and attic, 2.1.2. windows, has similar detail, with a slightly-projecting centrepiece. 2 flat-roofed dormers behind the parapet. Sashes, with normal cill levels to the ground-floor. There is an Ionic porch of 2 coupled columns, 2 palasters, and ½-glazed wide opening, containing double doors. The Order has simplified details in Greek style and there is a blocking course. The east elevation has 5 windows, symmetrical except for 1 ground-floor window being centred between 2 upper windows at the south side, again with similar details. The north elevation (of brickwork) is symmetrical, of 2 storeys and attic, with plain walls except for a large round-headed staircase window in the middle of the recessed centre: the west side is masked by the (north) wing, and the ground-floor is masked by a C20 service block, roofed by a balustraded terrace. The wing is of 2 storeys above a basement, which has access to a yard on the west side: the roof ridge is below cornice level and there are rendered walls, regular fenestration with sashes, and garage entrances in the basement. Inside the house retains its original palatial appearance, with entrance hall, large staircase hall, and main rooms with plasterwork, doorcases and fireplaces.
