C16 house remodelled in C18 as double-depth plan. 3 storeys and basement; 3-window range. A symmetrical garden front has ashlar quoins, strings to each floor and timber modillion quoins to overhanging eaves. Raised ground floor has an arcade of 3 semicircular arches, formerly an open verandah, now linked by an ovolo impost band, with ashlar aprons, each with 2 mullions, a central half-glazed door and outer 12/9-pane sashes with thick ovolo-moulded glazing bars. Moulded architraves to tall first-floor paired 12/12-pane sashes, and smaller single second-floor windows with 4/4-pane sashes. Shallow side projections, and rear with exposed timber-frames to 12/12-pane sashes, and rubble quoins. Street entrance from late C18 left-hand limestone ashlar single-storey porch, an architrave to door with 4 flush panels. INTERIOR: very fine late C16 joinery, plasterwork and fireplaces, and early C18 joinery. Great Oak Room almost completely original, fully panelled with fluted pilasters to a dado and panels with semicircular arches to a cornice, pedimented doorways and semicircular-arched doors, porch with paired Ionic columns, heraldic panels and figures; fine fireplace with paired fluted columns to a cornice, and paired terms to the overmantel with strapwork panels; strapwork plaster ceiling with pendents. Large early C18 rear open-well stair with fluted column newels, triple barleysugar balusters, wide surtail, and a moulded, ramped rail. C18 reception rooms, formed by enclosing the garden verandah, panelled with good fireplaces. Stone stair flight to street entrance, with a good 16-panel door at the bottom. New Oak Room has panelling and fireplaces from the Museum Reserve Collection. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached rubble walls around rear knot garden; brick-walled steps up from the garden, with Ionic capitals, and an elliptical arch to the front. Built as a Lodge to Younge's Great House, destroyed in 1863. Modernised c1730, when the garden verandah was enclosed and mullion windows replaced. A very fine interior containing some of the most important panelling in the country.
