GV II

1795-7 by Robert Mylne (1733-1811) for himself; heightened and extended in early C19, rear (S) part c1900. Yellow brick with stucco bands at sill level on 1st and 2nd floors. Hipped tiled roofs. A tall 3-storeys and basement house with 2-storeys wings set back, facing N. Symmetrical 3-windows N front with recessed sash windows with 6/6 panes. 4-panel half-glazed door central with projecting pedimented porch up steps with 2 Composite columns. Originally of 2-storeys above the basement with single storey wings set back, the upper stucco band with billet moulding formerly marked a parapet which was swept up to single-flue chimneys at each corner, for the bedrooms. This eccentric feature has been disguised by the C19 heightening of main block and wings. The addition of a 2-storeys canted bay in the E, a rear extension over part of the service yard, internal reorganisation and the addition of a rear conservatory enlarged Mylne's very small house. Early in the present century the conservatory has been replaced by a 2-storeys range with Greek Doric portico in antis. (Country Life 30 September 1954 and 13 June 1952: Pevsner (1977) 150: RCHM Typescript).
