Callerton Hall

(Formerly listed as: Callerton Hall Rest Home)


House. Early C18, alterations by R. Norman Shaw in 1892; further alterations early C20.

Rock-faced stone, part rendered with massive rock-faced plinth rising to ground- floor sill height. Lakeland slate roof. 2 storeys plus attics, 7 irregular bays. In 3rd bay early C20 recessed porch with screen of 2 Tuscan columns in antis. Smaller 4-pane sashes, on ground floor and larger 12-pane sashes above. Moulded cornice. Steeply-pitched gabled roof with kneelers bearing C18 lead figures. 5 pedimented dormers. Rendered ridge and end stacks.

On left return the plinth continues, but wall is rendered above. 2-storey inserted, wood, canted bay window.

To rear irregular fenestration with 12-pane sashes under 3 gables. Two 2-light double-chamfered original basement windows.

Interior: Imitation C17 staircase with fat turned balusters; early C18 panelled room; also early C18 panelled door and window reveals. Fine Norman Shaw fireplace with marble bolection-moulded surround, Arts and Crafts tiles and re- used C18 panelled overmantel. Art Deco room with fluted pilasters dying into the cornice. Round-arched early C18 doorways into stairs with panelled pilasters, architraves and keystones.

The house provides problems of dating. The rock-faced facade is probably early C18 Baroque. Norman Shaw seems to have added the bay window, dormers and internal decoration, including the staircase and considerably altered the attached service wing, now Oriel House (q.v.).
