TL8564SE ANGEL HILL 639-1/8/169 (North side) 07/08/52 No.12


Hotel, formerly a house. C16 core; early C19 front range; top storey added in early C20; restored in 1980s. White brick front, timber-framed and rendered rear; slate roof with a wide eaves overhang and small modillion cornice. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar. 4 window range: small-paned sashes (reinstated in 1980s) in deep reveals with stone sills and flat gauged arches. A raised brick band at 1st storey window sill level. The central entry is approached up a flight of stone steps with shaped balusters to the cast-iron railings; a 6-panel door with moulded surrounds to the panels and a rectangular fanlight has a Greek Doric doorcase with fluted pilasters and a cornice with a triglyph frieze. INTERIOR: cellar, with walls in a mixture of flint rubble, stone blocks and brick, has a stone doorway with segmental-arched head which appears to be in situ and is rebated for a door. The entrance hall is paved in limestone flags with black dots and has a good geometric stair with stick balusters, wreathed handrail and bracketed treads. A large semicircular-headed small-paned sash window on the rear wall, which formerly lighted the stair, has been blocked by a later rear extension. A small wing, at right-angles to the front, has the ground-storey room lined with square Jacobean panelling, probably re-used, and an internal chimney-stack with a stone fireplace surround, considerably restored, but with an original decorated spandrel. A change in the brickwork above the 1st storey windows is evidence of the Edwardian roof-raising.
