GV II

Detached house. Early C19, before 1839. Ham stone ashlar; Welsh slate roof between coped gables; brick end chimney stacks. Three storeys, 3 bays. Plinth, eaves cornice with secret gutter, plain end pilasters; 16-pane sash windows in plain openings, in diminishing sizes: to lower bay 2 a 6-panel Regency style door, up 3 steps, with open stone porch having Tuscan columns on panelled plinths, no wall pilasters, plain entablature with flat roof. Against south gable a single-storey extension with swept coping to roof, having a plain pilaster and matching 16-pane sash window: a matching north wing demolished in 1960s/1970s for road widening. Interior not seen. Extending in a curve from north-west corner a mid C20 reconstructed stone wall, as far as the gateway opposite the porch; thereafter a low stone wall with wrought- iron spearpoint railings having arch-braced uncapped standards, matched by the gates, curving round to a moulded coped ashlar wall about 1.2 metres high which returns to the south-west corner of the extension: the railings and south walling adding considerably to the setting of the house and of the streetscape generally. By 1839 this house was at the centre of the largest farm in the parish. (VCH, Vol III, 1974).
