GV II

House, now offices. Probably 1690s, detached from rest of house to left in 1712. Solid rendered front, almost certainly of brick underneath. Slate roof. Plan is 1-room wide, 2-rooms deep with stair compartment between the front and back rooms; entrance-passage to left of ground-floor front room with closet above it on first floor. Judging from other contemporary houses in the street, this was originally double-fronted; the rear room was a wing, either original or added later in C18. 3 storeys probably heightened from 2 storeys in late C18; 2-window range. Ground storey has C20 display window flanked by 2 doorways; house-door to left has flanking pilasters, entablature and fanlight, probably all C20. Second storey has early C19 wooden canted bay window with 6-paned sashes; entablature with bracketed cornice. 6-paned sash-window in box-frame to left. Third storey has barred sash-window in concealed frame to right: 2 panes over 6 panes. Wood casement to left: 2 lights of 6 panes each. Prominent moulded eaves-cornice. INTERIOR: original wooden dog-leg stair rising to first floor has pulvinated closed strings, stout moulded balusters, square newels with flat moulded caps (the caps at half-landing ar C20 replacements), broad moulded handrail. On first-floor landing 2 original doors, each with 2 bolection-moulded panels. Winding stair to second floor has square newel and moulded handrail; it probably led to an original garret. First-floor front room has plain dado with moulded rail and skirting; late C18 wooden chimneypiece with panelled pilasters and frieze with urns and festoons, the interior with outer part of a mid C19 iron grate. First-floor rear room has late C18 wall-cupboard with panelled doors. On ground-floor mid/late C19 half-glazed inner front door; upper part has coloured glass and glazing-bars forming Gothic arches.
