GV II

House, formerly the rectory. Dated 1780, but possibly earlier C18. Stone rubble with freestone dressings. Two-span stone slate roof with gabled ends. C19 ashlar stacks at gable ends. PLAN: Double-depth plan with two principal rooms in the south front range, probably originally with a central entrance giving on to the stairhall at the centre at the rear, flanked by smaller back rooms, the left [NW] now a study and the right [NE] now the kitchen. In circa late C19 the south front was remodelled, the front door blocked, main entrance formed at the rear and a wing built on the NE. In the C20 a wing was added on the W side. These wings, now separate dwellings, are not of special architectural or historic interest and are not included in this list entry. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic. Symmetrical 3-window south garden front with two attic gables. Two 2-storey canted stone bay windows with continuous string course, stone mullion windows and stone slate roofs; tall mullion-transom window at centre of ground floor, window above and smaller attic windows in gables with labels; sashes with leaded panes; C18 rusticated quoins on right hand [SE] comer. Rear north now entrance front of 3 bays, 2-light windows left and right, the first floor 4-light stone mullion windows with king mullions, the second floor windows in stone frames with keystones and 2-light 12-pane sashes, the left with original frames. Circa C20 porch at centre, its gable partly blocking stair window above; over the stair window a large stone tablet with cornice, breaking forward at centre with recessed panel containing quatrefoil and shield, flanked by smaller shields and inscription below `SS RECTOR 1780'; 4 plastered gabled attic dormers with casements; on either side of the porch the ground floor has been built out to provide corridors linking the later wings. INTERIOR: Drawing room has fielded panelling, moulded cornice and C20 chimneypiece. Dining room has some similar panelling and a C19 chimneypiece. Study has C19 stone chimneypiece. Rebuilt C18 staircase has alternate twisted and moulded balusters. Much of the C18 joinery survives on the first floor including fielded 6-panel doors and a bolection chimneypiece in one of the chambers. Exposed in the attics of the back [N] range substantial trusses with redundant mortices for former tenoned purlins and high collars.
