I

Country house. 1724 by Francis Smith of Warwick for Nicholas, Earl of Scarsdale. Coursed sandstone and brick faced with sandstone ashlar. A ruin but the outer walls remain virtually intact and much of the inner walls survive. Two storeys. Nine bay east and north elevations. West elevation with two four-bay projecting wings and deeply recessed centre portion. South elevation of eleven bays built up close to the church, the centre seven bays recessed. The main front is the sumptuous nine bay east elevation with banded rustication, entablature with modillion cornice and parapet. Centre three bays beneath a pediment with armorial achievement, on four Corinthian half columns. Two further bays on each side with giant Corinthian pilasters. One bay angle pavilion with coupled pilasters and doorcases with segmental pediments on brackets and windows above with moulded surrounds. Plainer north front, the centre three bays advanced. Giant Corinthian pilasters between each bay and windows with moulded surrounds. Central doorway with Gibbs Surround and pediment. West front is similar but with pilasters at the angles only and instead of a complete entablature, a modillion cornice with plain aprons below. In the front hall, on the north front, are fragmentary remains of C18 plasterwork by Artari and Varsalli. Some of the interior walls of coursed sandstone may be remains of the C17 house that stood on the site. Extensive brick vaulted cellars. The interior was dismantled in c1920 and some of the rooms are preserved in the Philadelphia Museum in America. J Carnforth The Uncertain Future of Sutton Scarsdale Country Life, v147, pp850-851.
