Building record MDR10789 - Somerville, Main Street, Findern
Type and Period (2)
- HOUSE (Georgian - 1775 AD? to 1800 AD?)
- PRIVATE SCHOOL (Victorian to Edwardian - 1890 AD? to 1910 AD?)
This two-storey L-shaped brick house with attics has a roofed cart entry to the east, with beyond it an outbuilding backing onto the street, providing gig-house, stable and loose-box. The house has been built onto a pre-existing 18th century brick outbuilding, and is almost certainly not the first house on the site. It appears to be of one build, probably in the late 18th century. A private school was held in the house around 1900. A spring rises into the cellar, now controlled by an electric pump. (1)
