5/6 Merrylands 11.11.52 GV II Substantial detached house. Late C17 with C18 and C19 remodelling and additions. Plastered cob on stone footings, and brick; hipped slate roof behind parapet, with some Delabole slates. The C17 house was a single-depth range with principal room on either side of central entrance hall and with rear wing; to this were added 2 further rear wings, one of them early-C18; an early-C19 front wing to left and a single-storey entrance hall which post-dates the early-C19 refenestration of the front. The old range has external end stacks with shafts (probably C17) made up of small imported bricks. The other stacks at the rear, and to the end of the front wing are later, with brick shafts. 2 storeys. Front: asymmetrical 5-window range with parapet; 12-pane hornless sash windows to 1st floor; ground floor with 2 similar windows to left of doorway, one to the right; doorway with early-C18 canopy on decorated console brackets. Mid-C19 2 storey brick wing to left-hand side, 2 window range, 12-pane hornless sash windows; similar sash window to inner face of wing above door with canopy on shaped brackets. Later single-storey extension to right-hand side of front with sash-windows and a door to inner face. Rear: C17 wing with 4-light casement window to each floor, 18-leaded panes per light to 1st floor window, 24 to ground-floor window probably late-C17 or early-C18. A left-hand extension (i.e. to south-east) adjacent to the C17 wing with early-C18 fenestration, two 2-light casement windows to 1st floor, with 21 leaded panes per light, another to the left of the door, and a 2-light opening with stanchions. A brick stair turret with a single-light window, and a 12-pane horned sash window marks the junction of these 2 wings, and is probably late-C19. A third rear wing to the right (north-east), C19, has a 2-light casement window to each floor. C19 casement windows to side elevations. Interior: of the late-C17 furnishings there survive 3 panelled doors, a panelled overmantel, a built-in dresser with moulded cornice (in the rear wing), and a door under the stairs with scratch-moulded surround. The wing contains a chamfered ceiling beam with step stops; the right-hand fireplace has a herringbone-brick back, probably C17. 2 C18 panelled doors with drop handles; early-C19 internal panelled shutters. C19 dog-leg stair with stick balusters; (the C17 stair was contained in a formerly external stair turret). Roof: soft wood, late C17; large principals morticed and pegged at apex; trenched purlins.
