4/164 Nancegollan House adjoining - entrance gateway walls and gate piers GV II

House, possibly an account house with farmhouse added, adjoining entrance gateway walls and gate piers. Circa early C19. Painted killas walls with dressed granite quoins, sills and lintels, granite ashlar entrance bay. Hipped scantle slate roof over the original part with brick chimneys over the front wall and lower hipped asbestos slate roof over the farmhouse addition with brick chimney over one side wall. Cast-iron ogee gutters. 2 bay deep plan, 2 rooms wide with 2 rooms wide farmhouse added back to back at the rear. Through or cross passage between linked to axial passage to doorway in the left hand (east) side of the farmhouse. The disposition of chimneys suggests that only the front of the original part was heated and that possibly the 1st floor rooms were, or possibly still are, the full depth, and if this was an account house were used as offices or for board meetings. Now all one house. 2 storeys. 3 bay 1 window north entrance front, the central entrance bay is a centrepiece of granite ashlar, slightly broken forward, with plinth, mid-floor string, and surmounted by an open pediment with the round fanlight head of a tall original sash window within the tympanum. Wide central doorway with pair of 3-panel doors to resemble a 6-panel door, the bottom panels flush beaded, the next panels fielded, the top panels glazed and a rectangular overlight with spoked marginal panes. The flanking bays are blind except for a 2-light casement at ground floor left. The left hand 2 window side wall has original ground and 1st floor 16-pane sashes towards the rear, smaller opening with horizontal sliding sash towards the front and later 4-pane sash replacement over. The symmetrical 2 window right hand wall, overlooking the approach lane, has 3 tall ground floor window and 2 smaller closer spaced 1st floor windows. All original 12-pane hornless sashes except ground floor left horned copy. Ground and 1st floor windows, far right, are in the side wall of the later part. There is no straight joint between the 2 parts on this side of the house probably because the original rear corner was rebuilt to construct the chimney. The rear is really the farmhouse front. A symmetrical 3 window front with central doorway, shallow brick arches over the openings, granite sills, original 16-pane hornless sashes and C20 glazed double doors. Interior not inspected, but an internal inspection would help to understand the piano There are several other interesting 'count' houses in this parish and they are included in this list.
