2/110 Gilbrook House, including house
11.11.52 adjoining south-west

- II

Detached house. Circa 1800 but incorporating the cob walls of an earlier building
of indeterminate date. Plastered cob on stone footings, the 1st floor timber
framed with lath and plaster infill; Kingsbridge slate gabled-end roof. Possibly a
3-room, cross-passage house plan which was completely re-organised and heightened
in circa 1800; single depth with 2 later rear wings of brick construction. 2 rear
stacks with brick shafts; traces of a left-hand end stack were uncovered during
repairs in 1967 (photographs in possession of occupier). 2 storeys.
Front: almost symmetrical 5 window range; modillion cornice; 1st floor: three 12-
pane hornless sashes alternating with 2 tripartite 4:16:4 pane hornless sashes;
ground floor with central doorcase under broken pediment, with pilasters (decorated
with paterae), panelled reveals and soffit to round-headed arch; fielded panel door
with traceried semi-circular fanlight. Tripartite sash (as above) and 12-pane sash
window to left, tripartite sash and another doorway to right. Rusticated quoins,
that to the right set back a little from the angle; similarly the cornice does not
extend exactly to the right-hand corner.
Rear: wings with some sash windows under segmental window arches.
Interior: some circa 1800 joinery including fielded panel doors; the main reception
room with 2 round-headed alcoves to rear wall.
Attached to the house is a substantial cob barn with a pantiled gabled-end roof.
One of the front garden walls (forming the rear wall of an adjacent building) is
decorated with 6 small, and 2 large brick round-headed recesses.
