Details

SHEDFIELD HIGH STREET SU 51 SE 6/9 New Place (Shirrell Heath) 3.2.52 I

Country house. 1906, by Lutyens. Walls of red brickwork (of special dimensions) in Flemish bond, moulded plinth band, hood moulds, parapet moulding, mouldings to the chamfered window frames (with mullions and mullions and transoms). Tile roof. A formal design of Jacobean style, with symmetrical elevations, and consistent use of details. South-east front of two storeys, projecting two storeyed porch and three storeyed projecting wings with full-height bays, 1.1.1.1.1 windows. Casements of a small standard size presented as mullioned or mullioned and transomed lights in a variety of multiple forms, the smallest in the 1st floor of the bays (group of 4) and the ground-floor of the recessed centre (wider group of 2), of double height at the ground and 2nd floors of the bays (group of 4) and 1st floor of the recessed centre (wider group of 2). In the centre are coupled double height windows above a semi-circular arch of triple mouldings, the wall face having projected decoration and quoins. The south west elevation is wider, of similar details, with outer bays and a more elaborate (half-decagon) bay in the recessed centre; 3.2.3 storeys, 2.1.2 windows. The north east front is similar, but the recessed centre has a catslide roof with hipped dormers, meeting a single-storeyed service wing extending at right-angles for some distance. The porch has a brick barrel vault, and leads to a passage which crosses the full width of the house, having a plaster barrel vault. A feature of the interior is a large room (the Bristol Room), which is lined with panelling, has an elaborate doorway and a carved stone overmantel and fireplace, and a richly-ornamented plaster ceiling with pendants: all these features (c1630) being re-used from a house in Bristol; a fine carved staircase, panelling in another room, and a stone fireplace, also come from Bristol. The building is notable for representing the change from the early Arts and Crafts style to the formal classical style of country house.
