GV II

House, now offices. C17 core; early C19 front; C20 extensions at rear. Timber-framed, encased in later brick, now painted. Tiled roof with a plain eaves soffit. Basic plan of main range and cross-wing. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, attics to part and cellars; 3 window range: sashes with vertical glazing bars in plain reveals. On the ground storey, a small-paned C20 bowed shop window on the right is set in an early C19 surround with reeded pilasters. 4 flat-headed dormers have sash windows with vertical glazing-bars. A recessed entrance doorway with a segmental fanlight and radial glazing-bars has columns in antis. At the rear, the cross-wing has a canted bay rising 2 storeys with 3 small-paned sash windows to each storey. INTERIOR: extensive cellars, below both front and rear ranges, with great variation in walling: rubble flint, old brick and render with stretches of re-used stone. Along the front wall a section of stone appears to contain a doorway which gave access to the street; an adjacent part is brick-vaulted and the walls have alternate courses of knapped flint and tile-like bricks. No features of interest are exposed on the ground storey, but on the upper storey there are dadoes of re-used Jacobean panelling, and some main components of the cross-wing frame are visible. The rear upper room of the wing has the ceiling raised and coved. Rafters renewed along the front of the roof. A fine stair with turned balusters, panelled dadoes and square headed column newels, and moulded handrail.
