GV II

Merchant's house. C16, remodelled and re-clad in mid C19. Brick. Slate to front roof slope, black-glazed pantiles to rear. 2 storeys and dormer attic. Door set to left within a timber case and hood. The door has 6 fielded panels under a plain overlight. One large late C20 plate-glass window lights the ground floor. 2 sashes to the first floor with margin glazing and gauged skewback arches. Gabled roof with one central gabled dormer with glazed sides: 2/2 horned sash. No stacks. The rear is of 3 storeys owing to slope in ground. Full-height C19 canted window bay with plate-glass sashes; the middle sashes have margin glazing. INTERIOR. The ground floor has a partitioned passage providing a hall-way from the front door, but in the mid C16 it was one room, probably a shop. Roll-moulded cruciform bridging beams decorated on the under surface with relief-carved stylised vine trail. The joists are roll-moulded with splayed end stops. Against the east wall is a blocked fireplace with a timber chimneypiece of c1580; roll-moulded bressumer, replaced roll-moulded jambs; strap-work frieze and an upper cornice with scrolled leaf-trail and an urn. The fireplace itself is lined with a complete set of C17 Delft tiles of a variety of designs: Neptune, dolphins, sea-monsters, castles and ships predominate. The design of the cornice is replicated in a timber cornice under the wall plate to the south side (within the entrance hall area) and the joists have been cut to allow the insertion of a staircase c1700, when the building became purely domestic at ground-floor level. 2 twisted balusters per tread, open string, 3 heavy turned newels with ball finials, moulded handrail. The stairs survive in one flight only. The east ground-floor room is heated from an early C18 eared fireplace with egg-and-dart surround.
