Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

A mid-19th century rural house retaining original features and character, La Fontenelle was built sometime between 1827 and 1855. It may have been built using materials from an earlier outbuilding belonging to Clairmont, a house to the west.

Two-storey, five-bay house. Porch at centre with slender Doric order columns and moulded cornice. Panelled door reveal. Extension on east side. Stone boundary walls, rusticated ashlar gate pillars.

Elegant staircase all the way to the attic, with a small round mahogany rail curled on the newel at the foot of each rise and neatly turned banisters (all circa 1830), and other woodwork, including door cases, of this period. Marble fireplaces and cast iron grates added around turn of 20th century.
