NY3856 NEWTOWN ROAD 671-1/5/221 (North side) 01/06/49 Nos.94 AND 96 Coledale Hall (Formerly Listed as: NEWTOWN ROAD No.94 Coledale Hall)


House and stable range now office and house. 1810 for Henry Fawcett (MP for Carlisle); 1846 internal alterations for George Mould (railway contractor) by Mr Withnal. Flemish bond brickwork with light headers on chamfered calciferous sandstone plinth (all dressings of this material partly painted); raised V-jointed quoins and cornice with solid parapet. Graduated greenslate roof with coped gables; original end brick chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 3 bays with single-storey, single-bay set-back right extension, lower left single-bay link wall with carriage archway and 2-storey stable range now No.96. Central panelled door with fanlight in prostyle Ionic porch. Sash windows with glazing bars under flat brick arches in brick reveals on stone sills. Right gabled extension has C20 door within a gabled wooden porch with shaped bargeboards. The rear is more impressive than the front; central panelled door with side lights under patterned overall elliptical overlight. Flanking bowed bay windows with glazing bars in stone surrounds. Upper floor sash windows with glazing bars in stone architraves. INTERIOR is particularly fine. Hallway has fluted Ionic columns and (1846?) cantilever stone staircase with patterned wrought-iron balusters and moulded wooden handrail. Panelled doors, some in panelled reveals and in moulded wooden architraves. Hall and principal ground-floor rooms have elaborate moulded plaster ceilings; modillioned cornices, roundels and radiating sectional panels; black and white marble fireplaces, one with carved details. Panelled internal shutters to each window. Alcove with segmental arch on console brackets. The house name comes from Richard Coledale, a merchant who lived here in the reign on Henry VI, but it had been called Harrington Houses. See Carlisle Journal (1810) for laying of foundation stone of present house; Carlisle Journal (1846) records the internal alterations. Became St Mary's Home for Friendless Girls in 1926 and now Health Authority Office. Left link wall and stable range, now No.96, are only included to preserve the carriage archway, which is contemporary with the facade of Coledale Hall. (Carlisle Journal: 26 May 1810; Carlisle Journal: 28 February 1846).
