GV II*

Small country house. Early C18. Perhaps by Francis Smith of Warwick, for Sir Charles Pye. Red brick with some ashlar dressings and rusticated ashlar quoins of unequal length; hipped slate roof; brick panelled stacks. The southernmost of a pair of monumental wings flanking a courtyard [the other wing is the former coach house block (q.v.)]; the intention may have been to link the two buildings with a principal range to the east, if so, the plan was never effected. North elevation: 2 storeys with moulded plinth and eaves cornice, reduced proportions to the first floor, raised blind panels between first floor windows and eaves. 7 bays, casements and glazing bar sashes with gauged brick heads, raised keystones, stone sills and aprons; the ground floor windows have wooden cross frames and retain some glass with lead curves. Central doorway with moulded and cased architrave, swan neck pediment on console brackets, containing the Pye coat of arms. West elevation: 2 storeys with moulded plinth and eaves cornice, reduced proportion to the first floor, raised blind panels between first floor windows and eaves. 5 bays, casements and glazing bar sashes with gauged brick heads, raised keystones, stone sills and aprons. Central door with heavy moulded architrave incorporating panelled pilasters, the head of the door was obscured at the time of the resurvey (November 1985). Interior: early C18 dog leg staircase with turned balusters. Clifton Hall was in a derelict and dangerous condition at the time of the resurvey. B.O.E. p.105-6. _ -- -
