11/39 The White House GV II*

House. c1674, extended C18; for the Acklam family. Brick and cobbles, rendered and colourwashed. 2 storeys with cellars and attics, originally 4 bays 2:1:1 with later extension to left. Central direct entry plan with original outshut for staircase to rear, later extended to right to form scullery. High chamfered plinth, cut down in places in late C19. 6-panel door with overlight under segmental head. Two 4-pane sashes to left, one to right. Cavetto-moulded first floor band. Three 4-pane sashes to first floor. Extension to left: ground floor has 4-pane sash to right, tripartite sliding sash with glazing bars to left. 1st floor: 4-pane sash to right. Rear elevation: 3-light wooden mullioned window with leaded panes, incorporating central roundels, to staircase wing. Stepped brick eaves cornice, roof dormer with sliding sash with glazing bars, end and axial stacks. Raised gables. Interior: this house possesses a number of original features including the following: ground floor, right room: overmantel with pilasters and cornice enclosing oil painting (on boards) of a naval battle. Round headed alcove to right. Ground floor, left room (probably former kitchen): flanking cupboards to fireplace. Closed string stair with bay leaf and riband frieze to string, newels with ball finials and turned pendants, and moulded handrail. The bottom newel is supported by a console bracket enriched with stylised bay leaves. First floor, right room: bolection-moulded fireplace and overmantel with pilasters and cornice enclosing a painting of Moses striking the rock. Left room: bolection- moulded fireplace and overmantel with pilasters, enriched with drops, and cornice, enclosing a painting of Noah and the Ark. The majority of doors in the house have bolection-moulded panels and are hung in eared architraves. Cupboard doors are also late C17/early C18 and retain their original hinges. There is a cellar beneath the stairwell and a pantry beneath the stair itself: the pantry door is three-panelled on iron hinges and is likely to represent the original pattern of the other doors of the house. The Acklams were a noted Quaker family and one of the first to be convinced in the East Riding. The grave-markers (q.v.) of several early members of the family survive in the garden to the rear.
