WEYBREAD WINGFIELD ROAD WM 28 SW 1/139 Instead Manor House - ( formerly listed as 29.7.55 Instead Manor Farm House) -- II

Manor farmhouse. C16 range to east with 2 adjoining early C17 wings to west, forming L-shape plan. Timber framed and plastered; roofs mainly clad with black pantiles, some glazed; plaintiles to the front of the southernmost C17 wing which faces the road. 2 storeys and attics. To the south a range of 5 flush-frame sash windows with glazing bars. To the east the earlier range has sash windows on the ground floor and on the upper floor 2 good projecting C17 ovolo-moulded windows of 5 lights (one with a transom) and an early C18 cross window with old square-leaded panes. The 2 C17 wings have matching 3-light gable windows with dentilled heads; these gables had drop finials, one of which survives. Rising from the C17 wing is a fine stack: there are 4 octagonal shafts with star caps, the 2 shafts at the front enriched with moulded brick. The earlier range has an external stack set against the west wall. The interior, which once contained some good panelled rooms, is now somewhat modernised. The northern of the 2 C17 wings contains a good early C17 closed-string stair with turned balusters and square or oblong newel posts with finials; this stair does not appear to be original to the house. On the former outside wall of this wing (now within a C19 addition) there is a section of incised pargetting with a running design of foliage. One bedroom has a C17 overmantel with fluted columns and 2 arched panels with later oil paintings of flowers in vases. Some C17 panelling has been placed in the C19 entrance lobby. A number of good early C17 9-panel studded doors. Above the lintol of a ground floor fireplace a section of a carved beam with Tudor rose and the date 1603.
