GV II

Detached house. Early C19 with an earlier rear wing. Blocked stucco, some cob, on
limestone footings; hipped slate roof with lead rolls to hips and ridge and deep
eaves. L-shaped plan; the front range single-depth, with room on either side of
entrance hall with rear outshut, heated by rear stack; the wing is heated by a
lateral stack to the right-hand elevation, both shafts plastered. The stairs occupy
the inner angle at the junction of the 2 ranges. 2 storeys.
Front: symmetrical 3 window range; pilaster quoins; 1st floor casement windows of 2-
lights, that to the centre narrower than the others. Tall, 2-light casement window
to either side of doorway; panelled door, rectangular fanlight; canopy on shaped
brackets. Pretty shaped eaves fascia.
Rear wing with casement windows, and one sliding sash with wooden guiding keys.
Interior: the roof of the wing with straight principals, crossed and pegged at apex,
extends into the roof space of the front wing; this feature together with the
position of the stairs indicates a pre-C19 build, but precise dating is not
possible.
