MONEWDEN THE MOAT HOUSE TM 25 NW 4/158 II

House, formerly the rectory. Circa late C16 or C17, remodelled and extended in circa 1847. Gault brick in Flemish bond, plastered timber frame at rear. Gable-ended roof, slated over front range, and more steeply pitched tile roof over back range. Brick axial stacks.

Double depth plan. The original house, the long back range with an axial stack was relegated to service rooms when in circa 1847 the front range was added; the addition comprises a central stair hall with a principal room either side. Later outshuts at rear.

2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window east front. Three 16-pane sashes on first floor, 20-pane French casements on ground floor and central doorway, all with moulded cast-iron lintels on console brackets, the doorway with rectangular overlight with glazing bars and panelled and glazed door. Similar cast-iron lintels over sashes in end walls. Back range is 2 storeys and attic with central gabled dormer and 2 single storey outshuts.

Interior: Most of the mid Cl9 interior features survive including joinery and marble chimneypieces, those on first floor complete with cast-iron grates. Good open-well staircase with stick balusters and moulded mahogany handrail up to column newels. The ceiling of the entrance hall by the staircase is supported on a cast-iron column. In the back range the central room has exposed chamfered cross-beam supported on a large jowled post and on the first floor some wall-posts, wall-plates and tie-beams are exposed.

Note: A drawing for the remodelling of the house (in the possession of the owner) is signed David Smith-(Hunt?) and dated 1847.
