STOURPORT ON SEVERN

SO7971 LICKHILL ROAD, Lickhill 589-1/6/95 (South side) 05/07/50 Lickhill Manor

II*

Country house. c1700, but possibly built in 2 distinct phases. Brick with graded slate roof. Entrance front of 3 storeys and 7 bays, the upper storey a different brick and bond, possibly extending a house of the late C17, in the early C18. Central door with 6-fielded panels in shouldered architrave and segmentally arched pediment. Flush framed 12-pane sash windows with flat arched gauged brick heads with stuccoed key stones, and moulded stone sills, aligned on each floor. Sill band to first floor, modillion eaves cornice. Rear elevation similar, but superior quality of detailing suggests that this was intended as the principal front. Central doorway with shouldered architrave with keystone and segmentally arched pediment on consoles. 12-pane sash windows have flat arched brick heads with fluted stuccoed keystones and moulded sills. Doorway inserted in former window opening to lower right. Parapet wall across both gables, linking 2 parallel ridges. Gable end stacks with projecting capping. Internally, a series of panelled rooms, to ground and first floor, at least one of the early C18 with bolection moulding to fireplaces and door surrounds. Others may be later C18, and there was some later C19 remodelling by the Crane family, whose monograms appear in painted plaster in a ceiling. Floral fresco painting to ceiling in one ground floor room. Small room to front has C17-style panelling, either a good copy, or surviving from an earlier building. Early C18 staircase with moulded string and turned balusters. Late C19 armorial glass in stair windows.
