GV II

Farmhouse. C17 or earlier origins, substantial C19 remodelling. Partly cob on stone, partly stone rubble, front colourwashed and rendered. Slate and asbestos slate roofs, stone stacks. Complex development. The present plan is a single depth main range gabled out to the front at the left-hand end. A rear wing to the main range forms a rough T-plan. The early core of the house is at the left-hand end of the main range which is cob and stone and hipped at the left end and gabled out to the front. This may have been the original inner room of a 3 room and passage house, heated from a partly dismantled stack at the left end. A stone stack on the ridge may be the former hall stack. The rear wing has a projecting lateral stack, now enclosed by a later outshut and is probably C19 and may have been a kitchen wing. In the C19 the lower end of the main range was completely rebuilt in stone rubble with granite quoins and probably extended, indicated by a straight joint at the rear. 2 storeys. The front elevation consists of a shallow front left gabled projection and a 3 window symmetrical C19 block gabled at the right end. The front projection is clad with corrugated iron at first floor level, the C19 block is colourwashed and rendered with a central gabled stone porch.
