HEMINGSTONE TM 15 SW 6/111 Hemingstone Hall and 9.12.55 attached garden walls on the south-west side

- I

Former manor house. Early C17, perhaps 1625, for William Style (d.1655). Red brick, largely encasing near-contemporary timber-framing; this suggests a timber-framed and plastered house, remodelled and enlarged in brick soon afterwards. Alterations principally of 1741, also in red brick. Bands-of moulded brick at 1st floor and at eaves cornice. Dutch gables to two set- forward cross-wings,with moulded brick copings; parapetted parlour-wing-side walls. Plaintiled roofs; two small dormers of c.1800. External C17 chimneys of red brick, the bases are moulded and the shafts plain and oblong. 2 storeys and attics. Plain chamfered window openings to hall range; original, but with C19 wooden small-pane casements. A pair of 2 storey splayed bays with shallow hipped roofs, C19 but probably a reconstruction. Good original 2-storey brick entrance porch with Dutch gable, with stucco doorway: a segmental-headed opening in a sunk frame, with a pair of stilted Tuscan pilasters, entablature and obelisk finials above; original moulded window at 1st storey, with C19 wooden casement; the inner doorway has a moulded oak frame and original panelled door. In the hall is a moulded arched fireplace, and extensive but altered wainscotting incorporating friezes and pilasters. A ground floor room has a 10-light wooden ovolo-moulded mullioned and transomed window. A chamber has a good original fireplace with carved overmantel, wainscotting and blocked ovolo-mullioned wooden window. A well staircase in the parlour wing has enriched square newels and turned balusters. Several other rooms have complete C17 and C18 panelling and other joinery. Some early wall painting is believed to be concealed beneath panelling. A block was added in double-pile fashion to rear of hall range in 1741: red brick with a band at 1st floor and parapet, small-pane sashes with cambered heads (thick glazing bars at ground storey only). To right of the main range is a further cross-wing, probably of c.1741: red brick with small-pane sashes (thick glazing bars at ground storey), timber-framed and plastered at the rear. A garden to the south-west is fully enclosed by a brick wall attached to the house: oblong, 50m x 35m x 3m high, of red brick in English garden wall bond, probably C18 but incorporating some earlier work.N.M.R.
