SOMERFORD BOOTHS C.P. (Off) HALLGREEN LANE SJ 86 NW 1/112 Somerford Booths Hall 6.6.52 - II*

Country House. Dated 1612. Rendered brick with ashlar dressings and a slate roof. Two storeys with attic. E-shaped double-pile plan. Entrance front: five bays symmetrically disposed with a central porch wing and ashlar plinth. The porch wing has a central doorway with an ashlar surround, the lintel of which is inscribed "Edmund Swetenham" at either side of a keystone inscribed "1612/A.D". To the first floor is a window of 4 lights with an ovolo moulded surround with mullions and a transom. Gablet above this with ashlar kneelers and coping and ball finials to the sides and apex. To either side at ground floor level are recessed portions of walling with 5-light windows to the ground floor with ovolo moulded surrounds and each having a transom. Similar windows of 4 lights to the first floor. The lateral projecting wings have 5-light mullioned windows at ground floor level and similar 4-light windows to the first floor, both with ovolo-moulded surrounds. These lateral wings in common with the central wing have ashlar springers, coping and ball finials. The main body of the Hall continues above the level of the projecting wings to the attic floor which has a further three gables set behind each of the wings and of similar form with ashlar springers, coping and ball finials and each containing a 3-light ovolo-moulded window. Those windows at right of the central porch all have hood surrounds as opposed to the ashlar surrounds at left, and appear to be of C19 date. The left hand side has 4 bays, those two at right surmounted by a gable and that at far left also beneath a gable with that at left of centre projecting slightly and having a flat parapet to the top of the wall. At ground floor level are 4 sets of French windows of C19 date with 4-centred arches to the head of each light. The first floor windows are all of 4 x 4 sash panes. The rear has 5 bays symmetrically disposed with the two bays at each side set beneath gables and the central bay having a flat parapet to the top of the walling. Two C19 cross-windows to each side at ground floor level with 4-centred arches to each light. To the first floor are two 2-light windows at each side with 4-centred heads to each light and the attic has a 2-light casement window to each of the gables. To the centre at ground floor level is a late C19 canted bay window of red sandstone ashlar which has 4 lights to the centre and single lights to the angles, having ovolo-moulded mullions and two transoms and a trefoil head to each light. At first floor level is a 4-light casement window with ovolo-moulded mullions and a transom. Adjoining this front at left is an extensive single-storey C20 addition.
