7.9.51 Ashtead House (Nos.1,2,and 3)


Large house, now 3 dwellings. Mostly earlier C18, but with a nucleus of C17 or earlier, and late C19 additions; altered. Handmade red brick with some burnt headers, mostly in Flemish bond; slate roof. Approximately rectangular double- depth plan formed by early C18 additions to the east and south sides of an earlier single-depth building; with later additions at both ends. The principal element is 3 storeys and 5x5 bays; its west front has an added 3-bay bow (in header bond) offset slightly left of centre, and in the outer bays a 3-course band over the 1st floor and a similar band and a parapet over the 2nd floor, all carried round; the bow has segmental-headed sashed windows of 12, 12, and 4 panes on successive floors, all with flat-arched heads; the narrow bay to the left contains an internal porch (entrance to No.2) which has an outer doorway with pilasters and entablature of moulded brick, above this a 12-pane sashed window with exposed box in a segmental-headed recess, and a segmental-headed 9-pane sash at 2nd floor; the wider bay to the right has a glazed lean-to addition at ground floor, a modern 3-light window at 1st floor, and a segmental-headed 9- pane sash at 2nd floor; and the roof is hipped on a square plan, with one chimney on the right-hand ridge. Set-back at the left (north) end is the altered facade of the earlier building, of 2½ storeys and 3 narrow bays, with a modern flat-roofed wing covering the 1st bay, a glazed lean-to addition at ground floor, 2 windows at 1st floor (like that over the porch), and a continuation of the 1st- floor band above these. The south front (No.1) has 2 extruded chimney stacks which divide it into 2:2:1 bays, but the centre and left at ground floor is covered by a large C19 flat-roofed 3-bay addition (said to have been a ballroom) with French windows in the 1st bay and 15-pane sashes in the others; otherwise the windows are mostly 12-pane sashes with exposed boxes. The east side (entrance front to No.1) is of 4 bays, with a doorway inserted in the 3rd bay, 12-pane sashes to the left and above, and narrow 8-pane sashes in the 4th bay. Continued to the north is a 2-storey former service wing (No.3) which is not of special interest. Interior: No.2 contains remains of a former timber-framed range on a north-south axis: chamfered axial beams at ground and 1st floors, a king- post roof truss at the top floor with tie-beam terminating approx. 2 metres inside the present front wall, and the upper 2 flights of a C17 staircase with closed string and turned balusters; No.1 contains a fine C18 open-well staircase with carved brackets and 2 fluted balusters per tread.
