GV II

House in row. C15 with C20 alterations. Square panel framing
with plaster infill, tile roof, brick stacks.
PLAN: L-plan of hall and solar type with parallel-plan front
range. The ground floor has been completely cleared for C20
commercial premises, and there are flat-roofed additions to
the back, but the original 2-room layout remains on 2 upper
floors, with a corner staircase and room beyond forming an
L-plan.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic, 4-windowed. Refenestrated late
C19: 2 lofty gabled dormers with framing and 3-light casements
with transom, broad barge-boards, above four 2-light casements
with transom, all with chamfered wood mullions, and raised
surrounds.
The ground floor has a 1991 shop front in sympathetic C19
style, replacing a very unsuitable plate-glass frontage. The
ridge of the rear wing is just visible above the main ridge,
right.
INTERIOR: retains substantial original timbering, with heavy
braced square-framed party walls, and in the first-floor room
to the left, a 4-compartment ceiling with chamfered beams.
Fine C17 dogleg stair with square newel posts, heavy moulded
handrail, and twisted balusters; the stair runs through both
floors, but has been cut off between ground and first floors
in the recent alterations. The attics also have framed gables,
and large cambered tie-beams at floor level. One wind brace
remains in the back slope of the roof, with a corresponding
mortice in the opposite principal. The upper half-landing has
remains of a large corner post, and the back wing retains some
framing.
This is an important building in a group which has been
substantially rebuilt on either side; the recent renovation
has been achieved with care, respecting the scale of
surrounding properties in new work.
