GV II

Detached house, empty at time of survey. c1840s with c1900
alterations. Mass wall construction, stuccoed and blocked out;
hipped slate roof; stacks dismantled.
PLAN: an unusual plan, for the size of the building: 2 rooms
wide, but in effect only one room deep, since the front
portion of the house consists of a an axial passage containing
the stair. There is no evidence for the former kitchen in the
main range and presumably a service wing is missing.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and cellar. Symmetrical 3-window front
with platband at first-floor level. Central porch with Tuscan
columns with fluted capitals; deep dentil cornice. 6-panel
door with segmental-headed fanlight in doorcase with panelled
reveals. Tripartite sash window with 4-pane sashes in the
centre and 2-pane sashes in the outer lights. First floor
centre window is round-headed with 6 fixed panes. To the left
a lower, probably later, block has a 2-window front with
4-pane and 2-pane sashes. The rear elevation had French
windows but has been rather mutilated for industrial use.
INTERIOR: retains features of interest including a stick
baluster stair rising axially along the front wall with stick
balusters and a ramped wreathed handrail. Moulded doorcase
with flower motifs; 6-panel door; plater cornice; chair rail;
shutters. Right-hand rear room gutted for industrial storage.
The lower-roofed block contains stairs down to the cellar.
A front right wing (Oakdale) is a separate property and not
part of the listing. It may have originally been an Edwardian
wing replacing an earlier service wing.
