SO8071SW ARELEY LANE, Areley Kings 589-1/7/81 (North side) 05/07/50 Areley Hall


Large house, formerly comprising a single dwelling with Muxlowe House (q.v.). Substantially late C16, though with extensive alterations c1820 and c1870. Largely timber-framed, though with some brick additions, and roughcast rendered throughout. Main front faces south, 2-storeyed with 3-storeyed porch, 4 bays with a narrow additional section added to left in late C19. Doorway to right, not in its original position, with carved and studded door with round arched fanlight over. It is located one bay to right of projecting full-height gabled porch with exposed timbering in the gable apex, close studding with decorative braces above the lower rail. This is carried on C19 Doric columns, encasing earlier supports, which also form the structure for a flat-roofed porch over the present doorway. Windows are casements with mullions and transoms beneath hoodmoulds, probably c1820. Large axial brick stack between the 2 left-hand units. Projection beneath the roughcast across the facade may be sill band of brick facing, or possibly remains of timber jettying. Rear elevation comprises 3 projecting gables of different heights and periods. The outer 2 may be original - certainly the left hand gable houses the staircase which is clearly integral to the early timber framed construction - but all fenestration is late C19 or early C20. There is a lower projecting wing beyond to the left, probably partly C18, but extended by a further bay early C20. Inside, the staircase and the roof stucture suggest that substantial parts of the original structure survive, though fire-places and other internal detail relate to the C19 improvements.
