PEATLING PARVA MAIN STREET (East Side) SP58 NE 8/55 Peatling Hall and Garden Walls (formerly listed as 11.1.55. Little Peatling Hall)

GV II* Country house. Core is late C17 or early C18, extended by Detmar Blow c1910. Brick with stone quoins and Swithland slate roof. Entrance front faces south, 5 bays and 2 tall storeys, the left hand bay an addition by Blow, who also added the projecting full height porch. Its round arched doorway flanked and surmounted by slender pilasters with shallow moulded entablatures. The windows are tall and slender with fine gauged brick heads with stone keys. The glazing, 30-light sashes may also be the work of Blow. Parapet with recessed panels and hipped roof recessed beyond. Garden front gives a dramatic sense of height. It is 5 bays, and the outer bays are canted projecting bay windows on each floor. The northernmost of these was also added by Blow, making this front symmetrical. Central range is narrow in width, but 3 storeys high with central French doors. Window detailing similar to entrance part, and the parapet also continues. 5 bays recessed to right were formerly 2 storeyed, now flat roofed. North gable wall shows the relation of new and old work: it consists of 2 parallel ridges: that to west is clearly C18, and its elevation has 2 sets of paired 16-light sashes to the left, above ground floor doorway, and round arched windows with decorative glazing lighting staircase beyond. 2 moulded sill bands. Inside early C18 staircase with turned balusters and fretted decoration on the cheeks. Garden wall is attached to the house at SW and NW angles and forms a walled garden and larger boundary wall terminating in gate piers with stone ball finials. Wall is brick, buttressed, with facing brick copings.
