GV II

Town house, probably merchant's house. C17: probably for Thomas Melhuish 1656 (lease), 1657 lease to Andrew Rider, merchant. Render replacing stucco on timber-framed jettied front between rendered rubble side walls corbelled out for each floor; steep dry slate roof gable end on to the street; rubble axial stack heightened with brick. Double-depth plan. 3 storeys including 2nd floor partly in roof space; 2-window range (1st floor). C20 twelve-pane horned sashes and C20 pair of 16-pane 2-light casements to gable. Ground floor has two C17 ovolo-moulded oak doorframes with ogee stops on the left with C20 six-panel door fronting through-passage far left, and C20 top-glazed door adjoining early C19 eighteen-pane projecting shop window plus sidelights. INTERIOR retains old floor and roof structures and possible stair or garderobe recess to right-hand wall. A notable survival for W Cornwall of a C17 merchant's house of this type, gable-ended and with right-angled plan to street. (Palmer J: The People of Penryn in the Seventeenth Century: Truro: 1986-).
