2/93 The Grove (formerly listed
7.12.66 as Grove Farmhouse, Easton

- II*

Former farmhouse. C16 and early C17. 2 storeys and attics to main range; 2
storeys to cross-wing on the north-east end. Timber-framed, mainly encased in
C18 red brick laid in Flemish Bond; plaintiles; paired bracketed cornice. An
internal chimney-stack with 3 attached hexagonal shafts and moulded caps on a
square base. 5 small-paned sash windows to main front: flush frames, gauged
heads on ground floor. C20 enclosed gabled brick porch; 6-panelled door with
panelled linings to surround. The cross-wing is the oldest part of the house,
with a fine exposed ceiling in the principal room: multiple roll-mouldings to
main cross-beams, single roll-moulding to joists, and blocked original and
later windows with ovolo-moulded mullions. The internal chimney-stack links
this wing to the later main range: an open fireplace with timber lintel to the
ground floor, and a smaller fireplace on the upper floor with 4-centred arched
head and chamfered surround with pyramid stops; in the plaster above, 2 small
raised fleur-de-lys motifs and a central wheel. Beside the chimney-stack is a
very steep geometric stair, lightly made, with plain balusters, wreathed
handrail, and bracketed ends to the treads. The main range, in 6 bays, has
been partly Georgianised. On the upper storey on the south-west side is a
complete 5-light ovolo-moulded mullion-and-transome window, in perfect
condition, with all components numbered. One plastered upper ceiling with
heavily-moulded cornice; in the same roof an ornate cast-iron hob grate. The
roof-bays correspond to wall-bays: diminished principals, one row of unstepped
butt purlins, and an upper clasped purlin; cranked windbraces; an intermediate
collar between each bay. The roof of the cross-wing has been integrated with
the main roof, and has a similar structure.
