SX8571SE WOLBOROUGH STREET 1012-1/13/144 (South side) 16/07/49 No.63 Manor House


House, now offices. C17 with early C19 and C20 alterations. Probably cob under painted stucco to the front, rendered to the sides and rear; slate roof with massive stacks to the gable ends. Central-entry plan with end stacks with C19 and C20 rear wings. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys; symmetrical 3-window range. Eaves band, mid C18 set-back doorcase and wide 6-panel door glazed to the top, raised panels to the centre and beaded panels to the base; similar panels to the reveals and soffit. The C19 front of the doorcase has three-roll reeded pilasters and a fine fluted frieze, wrought-iron bell pull and polychromatic floor tiles. The C19 prostyle Tuscan porch has a C20 cornice and roof. C20 casement windows. INTERIOR: the ground floor has a C17 moulded beam to the right and a boxed-in beam to the left; C18 architraves and skirting boards; fireplace to left has timber lintel with scroll-stop moulded arris and geometric-inscribed sgraffito sides. Lower staircase is late C17 with wide straight rail and heavy turned balusters. C17 plaster to first-floor cross beam and plaster frieze with anthemion motifs and cyma-moulded cornice to first-floor room on right. C19 king post roof. An early example of this centralized plan form in this region; the sgraffito decoration to the fireplace is a very rare survival of a once common decorative technique.
