3/10 Vipoint House (formerly listed as The Post 20.2.55 Office)


House, 1666 and later. Coursed rubble and stone slate roof. Two storeys. the original part is wider and is entered through its gable end, now projecting beyond a C18 extension at the lane side. This original part has chamfered windows on the north side (of one and four lights below, and each of two lights above) and two similar of three lights on the south side; all those on the ground floor have hoodmoulds. The doorway is elliptical headed and chamfered, the lintel carved I W V 1666 and surmounted by a hoodmould. Over is a cyma-mouthed 2-light chamfered window and hoodmould. Over this, in the gable, and also along the haves on the north side, are pigeon holes. The northside has a first floor cupboard window, and the south side another with arched head, both blocked. the addition has various windows of which the oldest seem to be the two on the first floor north side of two lights with recessed flat-faced mullions. Similar 3-light windows are found on the south side of the main block, which was probably altered at the time of the extension. Interior not inspected but may be of interest.
