WITHERIDGE SS 81 NW 5/56 Bradford Tracey House lO.12.85 GV II

Country villa. Early C19. Rendered and whitewashed, gabled slate roof, fretwork bargeboards with pendants, wood finials to the gablet and gable ends, rebuilt and rendered stacks, verandah with a zinc tent-canopy roof.

Plan and development: L-shaped and all of a single build. Front range with the 2 principal rooms with gable end stacks. Central entrance hall between these 2 rooms with an open-well staircase at the back. Long service wing at right-angles to rear.

Gothick style.

Exterior: 2 storeys, 3 windows, 2-light casements with leaded lights, French windows to ground floor, Gothic glazing. Central panelled doors. Service wing with casements with leaded panes and a canted bay with sash windows and close-set glazing bars. Verandah across the frontage, slender iron posts, stone floor with half-round edge nosing.

Interior with staircase with a moulded turned newel, stick balusters and a moulded rail. Other small features include doors and reeded architraves, also window shutters.

Part of a small estate established new in the early C19 in the romantic style of that period. Not a working unit, the estate was intended solely for recreational use and was probably intended as a summer residence of a town dweller, In the grounds of the villa are a lodge on the entrance driveway (q.v.), a gateway (q.v.), and a further lodge to the north (q.v.), which form an interesting and complete ensemble.
