GV II

House, now hall and office. C17, refronted c1720, part of
attic removed and re-roofed mid C19 to form first-floor hall.
Limestone rubble and ashlar dressings, ashlar gable stacks and
slate roof. Double-depth plan.
2 storeys and attic; 3-window range. Coped gables with moulded
kneelers. Central doorway with dressed surround and bracketed
flat canopy, ashlar plinth, with squared, coursed rubble to
upper wall. 6-panel door with 3-pane overlight. Raised ashlar
surround to square ground-floor windows, blocked to the left,
a 6-pane window to the right, and tall C18 6/9-pane sashes
with thick bars. Left-hand gable has an ashlar plinth, blocked
central doorway with ashlar jambs, traces of former steeper
roof; timber lintels to paired ground-floor horned 4/4-pane
sashes, flush first-floor 6/6-pane sashes in exposed frames,
and a small attic casement.
INTERIOR: details include on the ground-floor a C17 left-hand
front dogleg stair with oak risers and treads which rises
around internal wall, 4 heavy chamfered and stopped axial
beams and a large right-hand fireplace with bressumer; first
floor has original left-hand bays with axial and lateral
ceiling beams with 3-inch chamfers and run out stops, and
early C19 small rear dogleg stair with stick balusters to the
attic, which has a collar truss 3-bay roof; longer left-hand
section has a C19 king post roof with tusked purlins over
full-height hall.
The unusual plan form with a large first-floor hall suggests
that this was used, at least from the C18, as a parish meeting
room.
