GV II

House in row. Late C17 or C18 origins, but re-fenestrated in
early C19. Coursed and squared stone, stone slate roof. A
wide-frontage house which seems to have been sub-divided at
one stage into 3 cottages, (141-143), now again one property.
Two storeys and attic, 3-windowed. Two small hipped dormers
with C18 2-light casements above 16-pane sashes; three C20
six-panel doors in flush surrounds. Two brick ridge stacks. At
the left end there is evidence of a former wide window with
surround, similar to those formerly in 137/139 (qv). The back
has a central decaying gabled dormer over an area of plain
slated roofing, and a 16-pane sash below. Interior not
inspected. Subsidiary features: low rubble wall to rough
saddle-back coping across front boundary has central pair of
plain stone piers with C20 figure crestings, containing a
wrought-iron reticulated pattern gate probably from the C18 or
early C19. Part of the best remaining group of houses in
Underhill, with an exceptionaly complete frontage still
retaining its stone slate roof.
