GV II

Gothick House: 1853 by and for J S Crowther with early C20 additions. Header board purple-red brick with buff sandstone dressings. Partly stone-slate, partly tiled roof. 1 brick and 1 octagonal stone chimney. 2-storey, 4-bay front. Right end bay has a 5-light window with trefoil-headed lights below and a 2-light mullioned and transomed window with a quatrefoil in the apex. Delicate beading along the gable edge and a gargoyle spout. To left is a low 3-stage tower with trefoil headed single lights and a tall pitched roof with a delicate ironwork top. Other 2 bays are additions but central one contains the original doorcase in a lancet surround with a carved quatrefoil above a flat rebated head. Pair of oak doors have ornate iron hinges. Garden front is a long range with 5 gabled half dormers and uses Gothick motifs. Interior: Hall has a Gothick arcade and enclosed dogleg stone staircase with trefoil headed openings. Dining and living rooms have panelled ceilings. The main beams on stone corbels. Grey sandstone Gothick fireplaces and arched sandstone window openings have crocketting.

At the north-east corner of the house is a hammer-dressed pink sandstone gateway with a pointed arch, with lower walls to either side. Standing on the walls and resting on the arch are 2 carved griffons, and a monster squats on the keystone.

It is interesting to compare Crowther's medieval-style manor house, with that of his pupil Thomas Worthington's, Broomfield, Macclesfield Road, Alderley Edge (q.v.).
