SP 69 NW KILBY Kilby Lodge

2/48 II

House, now divided into 2 dwellings. Probably C17, radically remodelled in cl832 by Sir Henry Halford of Wistow Hall to provide a dower house for his daughter. Brick in English garden wall bond (3:1); Swithland slate roofs in diminishing courses. Plan: double depth with rear wing and former stable block attached; part of the wing and the rear element of the main range appears to incorporate an earlier timber- framed structure. Two storeys and attic. Exterior: front, symmetrical 3-window range. Crenellated parapet to outer bays, steeply pitched coped gable to centre; cornice band interrupted by pilasters that rise to form 4 squat finials. Paired pointed 'Gothic' windows with bracketted sills and moulded surrounds under brick labels. Y-tracery 11-pane sashes to first floor; plate-glass hornless sashes to ground. Central doorway; 6-panelled door under 4-centred arch flanked by single windows with 'Gothick' tracery. Open canted porch, timber, each facet gabled. Both returns under 2 gables, both with windows to all floors (including attic) similar to front, those to the front blocked to accommodate flues to end stacks. Late C20 window insertion to right; later C19 canted bay window with hornless sashes to left. A third gabled range to left a little later with casement window (under label) over canted bay. Rear wing and outbuildings largely refenestrated in C20. Interior: part flag, part tile floors. Open-well stair (to rear of entrance hall) with ramped rail, stick balusters (some cast iron) and panelled cupboards below. Fireplace surrounds largely renewed. Side purlin roofs.

This building is a good example of a small 'Gothick' country house of the 1830s probably by the same architect who designed Sir Henry Halford's main seat at Wistow Hall. Halford was a Royal Physician.
