No.92
and attached piers and gates

GV II

House at end of row, possibly former farmhouse. C17; extensive
C18 re-structuring, especially main range to street. Rendered
and colourwashed, clay pantiled roof with stepped coped east
gable, continuation to west, brick end and intermediate
chimney stacks.
PLAN: a single depth cross-passage front range, both rooms
heated; a straight-flight staircase runs parallel with and
immediately right of the passage, and beyond the left-hand
room is a smaller room, also with stack. To the rear, left, is
a long, lower wing, probably of the C17 or C18, continued as a
barn.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 3 bays, but windows to bays 2 and 3
blocked up, leaving only sills. Bay 1 has 2-light mullioned
casement window below and an 8-pane sash window with exposed
boxes above, lower bay 2 has a 6-panel door in recess, with
moulded architrave and semicircular timber hood over. Plain
east gable, with 5-light C20 casement window to ground floor.
Lower extension southwards at rear, 3 bays, with C20 doorways
below, but above there is a 3-light horizontal -bar casement
window of 2-lights to bay 2 and 3-light to bay 3. This range
has a coped outer gable, but is hipped at the inner end,
facing the roof of the main range; there is large ridge stack
near the street end.
The rear of the street range has four 3-light casement
flat-roofed dormers above two 12-pane sashes and a paired
12-pane with mullion box and to a cambered brick head at first
floor. At ground floor is a tripartite 8:12:8-pane sash and a
16-pane sash, separated by a C20 door, the last two under a
glazed conservatory.
The barn has a hipped roof, part of which continues as a porch
to a door at the end of the wing; the barn was largely
restructured in the late C20.
INTERIOR: the passage is stone-flagged. The right-hand room
has an Adamesque fireplace and a deep recess to elliptical
head, the left room has chimney breast with blocked fireplace,
which is opened to the kitchen beyond. These rooms have
panelled window shutters. There are some 4- and 6-panel doors.
Under the right-hand room is a basement with a wide segmental
brick vault, approached by a straight flight of stone steps
under the main stair. The upper floors and the wing were not
inspected.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: on the north-east corner of the house a
small pedestrian gate, then a pair of late C19 boarded gates
with brick gate piers having stone bands and moulded caps. The
pavement crossing and the first part of the drive are in
granite setts.
