GV II

Country House. Mid C19. Rendered brick having a slate roof with lead
flashings. Two storeys. Garden front: five bays symmetrically
disposed. The central bay has French windows to the ground floor with
a 2-light casement window to the first floor with a stone sill. To
either side are shallow bows each incorporating two bays with French
windows to the ground floor and 2-light casement windows to the first
floor similar to that at the centre. To the left is a recessed wing
with a triple window to the ground floor and two 2-light casements to
the first floor. To the right is a further wing which is further
recessed but essentially similar having a tripartite ground floor
window and two 2-light first floor casement windows. A later doorway
has been inserted at left of the ground floor window. The right hand
side (entrance front) has a colonnade porchway at left with three
openings divided by ashlar Doric columns with antae to the sides. To
the right of this is a 2-light ground floor casement window and to the
right again a pair of French windows. The first floor has two 2-light
casement windows at left and a 3-light window at right, all with
painted ashlar sills.
Interior: The house is now divided into three dwellings but the
original plan remains largely unaltered. The entrance hall has a
round-headed archway supported on Doric columns between which runs a
single flight wooden staircase with barley-sugar balusters, a moulded
handrail and newels in the form of greyhounds gardant holding
cartouches each showing a leopard gardant in relief. To the left of
the staircase is a through passageway, now blocked, with ribbed
plaster vaulting. Two ground floor rooms have white marble chimney
pieces with flowers and ribbons in relief. One first floor room has a
Gothick chimney piece. The first floor landing has two basket arched
doorways with moulded wooden surrounds. The right hand wing (viewed
from the garden front) appears to be a later addition incorporating a
dining room to the ground floor and a nursery wing above. The left
hand wing may have been added at the same time.
