Olde House, Mill Road, Rearsby
I don't drive much these days so a friend took me out on 24th.November last and this short series is just a few shots from that journey round mid and eastern Leicestershire.
This house was mainly built between 1610 and 1613 in two stages and is Jacobean in design and appearance. A major rebuild took place in the 1930's using reclaimed timbers.
To the rear of the house is a Grade II listed barn, probably mid C18. Brick on granite rubble plinth, with Swithland slate roof. Central double doorway, with red and blue brick segmentally arched head, now blocked, between two brick pilasto buttresses. One 6 light window to ground floor of left hand bay, single door and window in right hand bay, and two upper lights. Various blocked vents. Known locally as maltings to former Benskins brewery.
