GV II

House. Late medieval origins, rear wing in the process of being remodelled at time
of survey (1987). Whitewashed and rendered, probably cob on stone rubble footings;
thatched roof with plain ridge; right end stack to main range, axial stack to wing.
Plan: Approximate L plan, the main range, facing the road, appears to have been
truncated at the left end, which adjoins the rear left wing at right angles. The end
of the rear wing was a single-storey carpenter's shop and was being remodelled as a
2-storey block at time of survey. Details of plan unclear at time of survey (1987)
as interior not inspected. Thatchers working on the house describe the main roof as
sooted.
Exterior: 2-storeys. Asymmetrical 1:1 window front, set back at the left. 1 ground
floor 2-light small pane casement, C19 or C20, to the right, 1 first floor 2-light
casement to left, 1 first and 1 ground floor window to the return wall where the
range is set back. The left return (the wing) has a C19 recessed door approximately
in the centre, 1 first floor 3-light casement with square leaded panes. Other
windows 2-, 3- and 4-light C20 with glazing bars.
Interior: Not available for inspection at time of survey but very likely to be of
interest.
At the west end of an outstanding cob and thatch village.
