TM 37 SW HUNTINGFIELD
5/83 Huntingfield Hall 25.10.51 - II*
Farmhouse, on the site of the manor house. Late C18, possibly by James Wyatt.
Red brick, pantiled roof. 2 storeys. Symmetrical facade in Gothick style, 1:3:1, the end bays set forward in the form of turrets. 2-light casement windows with Y tracery, those to the ground floor with pointed arches and hood moulds, those to the first floor with depressed ogee arches and hood moulds with fleur-de-lys finials. Very fine doorway with 6-panel door, a cusped ogee fanlight with glazing bars and Gothic-type detailing in the spandrels, panelled pilasters with tall pointed pediments, enriched frieze, cornice and parapet with blank quatrefoils. The facade has a tall parapet flanked by stone bands and with white brick crenellations: within the parapet are 5 stuccoed inset quatrefoil panels; above the parapet the turrets have an additional tier of 7 trefoil-headed blank panels, raising them above the level of the rest of the facade. The returns are narrow and windowless. To the rear is a lower service range with an open lean-to verandah to the south, facing a walled enclosure. The doorcase is derived from Plate 24 of Batty Langley's 'Gothic Architecture Improved' (1747); the facade may be derived from John Crunden's 'Convenient and Ornamental Architecture'(1767). Sandon, Suffolk Houses, 1977, pp189-90.
