6/136 Hall o' th' Hill 22.10.1952 GV II*

Large house, probably early to mid-C17 (though date 1724 given by Fleetwood-Hesketh, quoted by Pevsner); altered, now Golf Club. Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, slate roof with projecting eaves and bracketed cornice, 2 chimneys on the ridge. Now symmetrical rectangular 5-bay plan (formerly L-shaped, but rear wing demolished). Three storeys, with chamfered plinth, drip courses; distinctive facade with flanking 5-sided 3-storey bay windows at ends of facade, which are glazed continuously. Windows are double chamfered with mullions, and also transoms to ground floor, so that windows of 4 lights (to the outer bays) and 6 lights (to the centre) correspond to those of 2 and 3 lights above. Doorway with moulded architrave. Left and right return walls both have a large mullioned and transomed ground floor window (6 and 8 lights), a stepped 3-light mullioned window with stepped hoodmould at 2nd floor, a hollow chamfered bullseye (with hollow spandrels) above; at 1st floor the right return wall has a 4-light mullioned window with a hoodmould, but the left has a sashed window. To the rear at this end is a shortened staircase wing with mullioned and transomed windows on 3 levels. Interior: altered, but large ¼-round moulded beams (characteristic of early to mid-C17) are visible on all floors. (Pevsner; Fleetwood-Hesketh)
