walls

GV II

House. Late C19. Snecked granite with large granite ashlar quoins; granite stacks
with plastered chimney shafts (probably brick) and original chimney pots; grey slate
roof with horizontal bands of purple-coloured fish scale slates.
Plan: L-shaped house. The main block faces south-east and has a 2-room plan with
central entrancy lobby and staircase. Parlour wing projects forward at right angles
from the left end and integral outshot on right end. Main block has end stacks, the
left one shared as a lateral stack by the parlour. 2 storeys with attics in the
roofspace.
Exterior: Regular but deliberately asymmetrical 1:1 window front. The ground floor
windows are original timber 3-light mullion-and-transom windows containing
casements, only the upper lights with glazing bars. These have chamfered reveals
and Tudor-style hoodmoulds. First floor casements with glazing bars. The parlour
wing windows are in a projecting bay with monopitch roof. Above it, in the gable,
there is a tiny attic window. Front doorway contains late C19 plank door with
ornate strap hinges behind contemporary glazed porch leaning against the wing.
Above it is a small diamond-shaped light and above that a slit window. Outshot has
a door similar to the main one and another slit window. Main block roof is half-
hipped to right and the wing is gable-ended. This gable and the smaller one over
the main block window have ornate openwork bargeboards carved as foliage. Rear
windows have brick segmental arches and include a large sash with margin panes to
the stairs.
Interior: not inspected.
The front garden is separated from the road by a low granite stone rubble wall and
includes the original wrought iron gate. However this gateway is secondary. The
original is now blocked but its position shows from the monolithic granite gate
posts.
The village of Belstone was developed in the late C19 and early C20 and this well-
preserved late Victorian house is the best of the new houses here.
