    2.
    1618-35 for Sir Thomas Holte. A major early Jacobean house on a grand scale
    with a main block facing east, the forecourt enclosed by projecting flanking
    wings each with a square turret breaking slightly from the inner face. Shaped
    gables to front of wings and across symmetrical elevation of main block which
    in surmounted by an axial tower rising in 3 stages from the balustraded parapet
    to terminate in a 2 tier cupola: the dome on a square base over the original
    lower tier. Surprisingly restrained ornament to the elevations of red brick
    with darker brick diaper, the stone facings and quoins reserved for the corners.
    Well proportioned mullion and transom windows, with 2 storey canted oriel
    windows crested by strapwork to the ends of the wings. The central stone
    doorway, giving immediately into the centre of the hall, has Doric columns,
    entablature and cartouches above framed by strapwork and surmounted by ball
    finials. An inscription bears the date 1618. Plans for the ground and first
    floors survive in John Thorpe's book of drawings in the Soame Museum but there
    are differences in execution, particularly the plan of the hall, a provision
    for a polygonal end to the chapel on the south front and 3 bays on the west
    the foundations of which survive. Alterations may well have taken place following
    damage in the Civil War. Narrow wings abut the outer faces of the main forecourt
    wings but were originally of one storey only at their east and west ends
    heightened in the late C17. An arcaded loggia flanks the chapel projection
    in the centre of the south front. The west range has a 2 storey main elevation
    with a flat roof ro the Long Gallery on the first floor, the main block of
    the hall rising on the third storey behind with 6 shaped gables and a chimney
    stack with 6 grouped octagonal shafts. Archway to loggia at south end originally
    one storey but as on east front heightened late C17, corresponding archway
    added to north end in C18. The north elevation service/kitchen range with
    considerable alterations to fenestration in the late C17 and C18 and with
    early C19 service one storey additions. Very fine interior with wealth of
    decorations in contrast to almost classical restraint of exterior. Much panelling
    and architectural framework to doorways in great hall and to many of the monumental
    chimney pieces in stone end alabaster. Richly carved strapwork balustrade
    staircase in square well. One hundred and thirty six feet long, well preserved,
    long gallery. Considerable amount of original decorative plasterwork to frieze
    and ceilings but desceptively successful imitation Jacobean plasterwork carried
    out for John Watt the younger, leasee of the Hall in the 1818 to 1848.
