SU 5249 10.1.77 Berrydown Court House 6/28

1 GV

2. 1897-8 by Sir Edwin Lutyens. A large house with a near-symmetrical treatment of the longer north (entrance) and south (garden front) elevations. Two-storeys and attic. The north front has in the centre a 2-storeyed porch and at each end projecting single-storeyed small wings, merging with the high walls enclosing the forecourt. Hipped tile roofing, tall massive brick stacks, small flat-roofed dormers (to the east side). Roughcast walling: cambered heavy timber beam forms the entrance, which has a quarry tile floor with a step. Windows are square-leaded casements in oak frames, being small 2-light units on the ground-floor, and a 9 (east side) and a 7 (west side, with transoms) light unit beneath the eaves. The south front has a centrepiece and wings projecting forward, and separated at the ground-floor by lead-flat roofing above an arcade; the wide centre comprises 2 massive gables (meeting in a high valley) and is entirely tile-hung; the east wing has a tile-hung gable jettied above a 2-storeyed bay, with pilasters enclosing a tile hung first floor, the west wing breaks the symmetry but is of similar form, again with tile-hung first floor. All the extensive windows are leaded casements in oak frames, some with transoms; a wide bay of 9 units almost fills the arcade on the ground-floor. This almost entirely tile-hung facade has recessed areas on each side of the centre, containing a variety of windows and chimney stacks. The west elevation is asymetrical, and dominated by a tall stack, the original interior is virtually unaltered. The garden was designed by Miss Jekyll,
