9/57 Somerville, and front boundary
Detached house. Probably C17 origins, refronted in C18 and C20. Ham stone ashlar facade, coursed rubble to sides and
rear; thatched roof between coped gables; one ashlar slab and one brick end chimney stack. Two storeys, 3 bays. Outer
bays have pairs of 12-pane sash windows, replacing 2-storey bay windows the upper with timber lintels and the lower
with voussoired flat arches; later 4-pane sash window upper bay 2. To lower bay 2 a six-panel door set in beaded
recess, with early C20 segmental-arched keystoned sidelights. Plain end gables; slated 2 storey extension to rear
having parallel roof. Interior not seen, but reported is a likely 3-room cross-passage house modified, the east room
extended to the rear and furnished with later C18 wall panelling, the stairs in a central position, and a rear lean-to
on west end extends to 2 storeys: the main rear extension apparently built as a separate house, but now incorporated:
west room has a cambered-arched fireplace with incised spandrils: various collar truss types in roof suggesting some
reuse. Extending from front corners of house, with curved corners, a low stone ashlar wall crowned with neck-point
wrot-iron railings, with pair gates opposite door; larger pair of gates having cast spearpoints to upper and middle
rails, segmental toprails and semi-circle braces, on timber posts, against west gable, adding to setting. (VAG Report,
unpublished SRO, 1973).
