Details

MEETH MEETH SS 50 NW 3/190 Lower Court - GV II House, originally farmhouse. C17, extended and remodelled in early - mid C19. Rendered rubble walls to left-hand part, cob and rubble to right-hand part. Slate roof, gabled to left end hipped to right. Brick axial stack and large projecting rendered rubble front lateral stack with dripcourse at top and brick shaft. Plan: the house is apparently of 2 builds - the right-hand part C17, the left-hand part early - mid C19 with a solid wall between the 2 and noticeably different wall thicknesses. It is possible, however, that the left-hand part is a rebuild of an earlier fabric. The C17 end consists of 2 rooms, the larger left-hand one heated by a front lateral stack. The C19 part is a symmetrical 2-room range with central stairhall. Originally both rooms were heated and evidently functioned as the principal rooms whilst the older part was relegated to kitchen and service purposes. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmtrical 5-window front in 2 distinct parts. The left-hand section has a symmetrical 3-window front of C19 horned 16-pane sashes with a central early - mid C19 6-panel door. To the right of this facade is the projecting lateral stack of the C17 range which has a C19 2-light casement and C20 1-light casement on the first floor and a C20 2-light casement below. Adjoining the stack is a leanto C20 porch with glazed door. Attached to the right-hand end of the house is a 1-storey C19 range which curves around to the front of the house and has 2 doors and 2 windows. Interior: of old part of house has large open fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel and oven in right-hand side. The C19 section has 6-panel doors and open string staircase with stick balusters and column newel post.
