GV II*

House, now divided into 4 separate houses, one used as offices. Possibly late C16 or
earlier, extended in circa mid C17 and partly rebuilt in late C17 or early C18.
Stone rubble with granite dressings, rendered and painted on front elevation with
slate roof with gable ends and stone rubble end stacks. Lower left hand wing has
slate roof with gable ends and stone rubble and brick end stacks. Circa mid C17
extension to left hand wing is rendered and painted with exposed granite dressings;
higher slate roof with hipped ends jeep overhanging eaves with console brackets and
front and rear lateral stacks, the rear lateral stack projecting with granite quoins
and a brick shaft. The rear right hand wing is of stone rubble, the front wall
rebuilt in circa early to mid C20; slate roof with gable ends and end stacks. Circa
mid C17 extension to right hand wing of stone rubble with higher asbestos slate roof
with gable ends and front lateral stack.
Plan : The plan has been considerably altered and the original arrangement is
uncertain. Possibly originally with a courtyard plan, the front range of 2 room
single depth plan probably with central through passage and the rear wings to right
and left of 2 room single depth plan. In circa mid C17 the rear left hand wing was
probably extended with a cross wing of 2 room plan heated by front and rear lateral
stacks and the rear right hand wing extended with a range of 1 room plan heated by a
front lateral stack. In circa late C17 or early C18 the front range was largely
rebuilt on the earlier cellar which retains its mullion windows. This range retained
a 2 room and central cross passage arrangement, heated by end stacks, with a circa
late C17 or early C18 stair added in an outshot across the rear and a service stair
in the left hand wing. Possibly contemporary with these alterations, the circa mid
C17 cross wing to the rear of the rear left hand wing was partly remodelled. In
circa mid C19 the extension to the rear right hand wing was remodelled and in circa
mid C20 the right hand wing was partly remodelled and the front wall probably
rebuilt. In circa mid to late C20 the interior of the rear left hand wing was
remodelled.
Elevations: 2 storey and basement. Symmetrical 5 window front with painted quoins
and strings and deep overhanging eaves. Two 2-light mullion windows in basement.
Ground floor with granite steps up to entrance door which has C20 glazing and 2
raised and fielded panels. Two C19 12-pane sashes to right and left with exposed
dressed stone segmental arches. 5 C19 12-pane sashes on first floor.
Rear left hand wing of 2 storeys with an asymmetrical 3-window front with sashes.
Higher cross wing to rear has front and rear lateral stacks and renewed sash windows.
Rear right hand wing has a 2:1 asymmetrical front with 3-light C20 metal window
frames and tripartite sash in rear gable end.
Interior : Front range has circa late C17 to early C18 interior largely intact;
moulded plaster cornice in hall passage and right hand room suggests that the
entrance may have been directly into the large right hand room, the partition
inserted at a later date. However, the plaster cornices have been partly restored.
The left hand room retains bolection moulded panelling and a high quality plaster
ceiling with torus moulded ribs of similar pattern to the ribs around the wall
panelling. Central oval panel decorated with floral trail and central rose; the
outer panels were probably remodelled in mid C18 with rococo motifs. Open string
stair with ramped deep moulded rail, turned balusters on square bases and newels
comprising clusters of 4 balusters on a single square base. Back stair to rear left
with square newels, closed string, deep rail and turned balusters. Moulded cornice
in bedroom and several C18 2-panel doors. Roof structure comprising 6 trusses, the
front blades probably reused from the earlier building with pronounced curved feet
and morticed apices. The rear blades raised to accommodate the lean-to outshot which
contains the stair. Later lap-jointed and pegged collars. Butt purlins.
Rear left hand wing remodelled in C20. Rear right hand wing remodelled in late C19.
Chimneypiece in centre room possibly late C19 reusing some circa C17 material; carved
timber with raised panels, moulded cornice, fluted pilasters and key motifs. Roof
structure of rear right hand wing not inspected.
