Details

STIXWOULD HALSTEAD TF 16 NE 6/40 Halstead Hall 14-9-66 G.V. I Small country house. C16 with restorations of 1852, 1922 and 1966. Red brick in English bond with ashlar dressings, plain tiled roofs, raised stone coped gables with kneelers and finials and one brick coped gable. C19 ridge stack with paired diamond shafts and a similar stack but with 3 shafts. Plan now consits of a main range with a lower unit to the right, but was probably originally L shaped round the courtyard. 2 storey with garret 6 bay front having moulded plinth and stone string course, ashlar quoins to left hand side and moulded stone eaves course. Central C20 door with moulded surround, flat head and hood, with to either side 2 sets of 3 light windows having chamfered mullions and transoms, 4 centred arched lights, concave chamfered surrounds, flat heads with labels. The 3 lights on the extreme right only retain their original heads, the rest being C19 replacements. Above the windows are 4 centred brick relieving arches. To the left is a C20 wooden door set in a C16 4 centred arched surround having moulded reveals, blank shields to the spandrels contained in circles and a moulded flat hood. To first floor are 2 further sets of paired windows, each with 3 lights, the masonry of which is predominantly C16 with some C19 repair and match those on the ground floor. To the left is a small fixed light with round arched head, moulded square surround and label. A disturbance in the brickwork above suggests the former presence of an opening at this point. To the right is a single storey with attic, 3 bay block, the base and part of the front wall of which are C16, but extensive C19 and C20 remodelling has transformed it into a service range. Evidence in the right hand gable of the main block shows that this lower part was originally of full height with the rest. To ground floor is a C19 gabled porch with to left 2 C20 3 light casement windows. To first floor a small fixed light and a 2 light through eaves dormer, beyond again to the right is a lower unit with C19 ornamental brick stack. At the rear is a further 3 light window with 4 centred head, removed from the front in 1966, to left is a single C20 window with stone surround and a 3 light C16 window with flat head, hood mould and brick relieving arch over. To right is a further C20 2 light stone window with hood mould. To first floor is a C16 3 light window with 4 centred heads and hood mould. To right is a C20 plain light in stone surround and a 3 light C20 copy of the C16 3 light window. Interior retains a moulded stone doorway with 4 centred head, 2 roll mouldings separated by a concave moulding and a C17 plank and muntin door not in its original position. In the living room is a fireplace surround in stone, with 4 centred flattened arch and decorative carving in the spandrels. The moulding is stopped with a bulbous foot. This surround was originally on the first floor. On the first floor are 3 smaller narrower stone arches matching that on the ground floor. A later corridor has been inserted. The C17 roof is a staggered butt purlin with braced collars. The house stands in a slightly elevated position and is surrounded by an earlier moat.
