4/90 Buckley Hill 17/11/66 Farmhouse

G.V. II*

House. C17. English garden wall bond brick with C20 tile roof. 3-unit plan with 2 storeys (plus attic storey). Bay 1 was rebuilt in the late C19. First floor band includes courses of diagonally set bricks. Raised lozenge and square panels in brickwork on all elevations. Door in Bay 1 with square-cut stone surround. 2 ground floor and 3 first floor windows all with stone sills, C20 casements, flat heads below elliptical brick arches and continuous hoodmoulds using shaped bricks. A fire-window between bays 2 and 3 has been blocked. Series of 3 gables to front and rear give a distinctive appearance. Each gable has a blocked 2-light mullion window under an elliptical brick arch and hoodmould with a rendered square panel above. 2 rendered chimney stacks. The right return has 3 windows (as above) - one blocked with a mullion, one with a horizontally sliding sash and another with a C20 casement. A fourth was removed in the C20 to insert a bay window. Fenestration to the rear is equally varied but all windows are within the original openings and retain brick hoodmoulds. Interior: inglenook fireplace with cambered bressumer beam and heck post. Cyma- moulded beams with ogee stops. Beams and post have unusual carved corbels. Dogleg stair with closed string, oak splat balusters and acorn finials to the newels which are carved. Generally original oak 6-panel doors. Inlaid oak panelling in first floor room. Tie-beam roof trusses with curved struts. A well preserved example of a large brick house which retains many original and unusual features. Buckley family residence in 1618. J. Butterworth History of Ashton- under-Lyne.
