GV II

Detached house, now converted to retirement home flatlets. Early C18 with late C18 and early C19 alterations and additions. Multi-coloured stock brick. Extensions with slated hipped roofs. Central bay of 3 storeys and cellar flanked by 2 storey later extensions. Windows 2:3:2, the centre 3 blind. Central doorway with Doric doorcase under glass and timber porch. Mostly gauged red brick flat arches to recessed sashes with exposed boxing. Southern extension has a ground floor canted bay window with ogee penthouse roof. INTERIOR: hall has distyle-in-antis timber Ionic screen and chimney-piece with Ionic three quarter columns, egg-and-dart cornice, and frieze panels with a cartouche flanked by foliage. Stair of column on vase balusters with fluted Composite capital newel. Understood to retain other features of interest. HISTORICAL NOTE: known variously as Heath View, Earlsmead and the Old Court House. This latter name coined as late as 1926 when the house was bought by Mr Campbell Hunter. The name referred to the fact that during the 1850s the house was occupied by the Dunnett Estate Office: Dunnett was the Manor Surveyor at that period, and a seemingly spurious connection with manorial courts (which were actually held at the original Jack Straw's Castle) was thus stressed.
