4/88 Haughley Park and attached - garden walls on 3 sides 9/12/55 (formerly listed under GV I Haughley New Street)

Large country house, probably c.1620-30 for Sir John Sulyard. Remodelling of early C19. Partial reconstruction after major fire of c.1970. Red brick in English bond with plastered bands at 1st and 2nd floors. Shallow corner pilasters with circular finials of carved brick at head and foot of crowstepped parapet gables. Plaintiled roofs. 3 original external chimneys with tall triple octagonal shafts, star-topped (the shafts are rebuilt in C19 and C20 red brick). 2 storeys and attics. Mullioned and transomed windows of stuccoed brick with moulded pediments; most are of 6 lights with wrought iron casements and leaded glazing. In the cross-wing gables the windows are paired. A pair of 2-storey splayed bay windows in the main range with a cross-window in each face and embattled parapets. Brick dormer windows with detailing to match cross-wings were inserted in C20 over each bay. Original 3-storeyed entrance porch with details matching left hand gable: round-arched stuccoed doorway with moulded imposts and pediment. Over the entrance is a pair of round windows, restored but of C18 or earlier origin. The left hand section of the house escaped fire damage in c.1970: a chamber has fine complete C17 wainscotting with fireplace surround and pilasters. The right hand cross-wing was much remodelled in early C19, or possibly rebuilt, in Flemish bond brickwork, and with segmental bays and sashes on the north elevation. To rear of the main range is a staircase wing with large mullioned and transomed window; the well staircase was destroyed by fire and replicated in C20, along with many C18/C19 features at the north end. Attached C17 and C18 garden walls, mainly of red brick: at the east front, C17 walls project from either corner by 17 metres, one returning southwards for 36 metres (extended C19/C20 to form walled garden). A wall extends westwards from the north-west corner, linked to a 130 metre length of mainly C18 walling in Flemish bond brickwork on its east face, and in flint rubble on its east face, and in flint rubble on its west. Attached to the rear of the service wing at the south end is a late C19 stable range with lodgings above, remodelled in mid C20 to form offices. Suffolk Houses: Sandon, 1977.
