SJ 45 NW ALDFORD C.P. CHESTER ROAD (North side) 6/8 Aldford Hall


Farmhouse, circa 1880, by John Douglas for the 1st Duke of Westminster, converted (with no alteration to the exterior) into 2 cottages probably circa 1912. Lower storey of tooled squared snecked red sandstone, upper storey of brown brick with blue diapering, sparingly used, and sandstone dressings. Complex hipped and gabled roof of red tiles with massive central brick chimney. Stone-coped pedimented gables; dormer gables with brick pilasters terminating in stone finials. Kneelers to gables have ball finials. Doubly chamfered stone-mullioned windows with small-pane iron casements. Oak-framed porch at south west corner, under a cat-slide roof, has closely-spaced slender turned balusters of wood in front of glazing. Mid C20 door. Of 1½ storeys and 2 main bays to each front, Aldford Hall is a good, informally balanced composition in the Jacobean manner, showing Douglas's ability to present a varied massing from different viewpoints. Well grouped with the farm buildings (q.v.) Interior altered and largely stripped of detail.
