GV II

House. Probably C17 with alterations of the circa 1930s. Framed construction, the north elevation weatherboarded, the south elevation clad in 1930s imitation timber framing; peg-tile roof; brick stacks.

Plan: The main entrance front is the south elevation, overlooking the garden which contains a pond, said to be the remnants of a moat. The north elevation overlooks the farmyard. Deep single depth plan, 2-rooms wide with a central entrance passage, rooms heated by end stacks, stair rising behind the left hand (west) room. Added kitchen in an east end outshut. There are some puzzling features to the plan: the right end room was divided axially at one time and the fireplace, which appears to be secondary, is positioned to the south.

Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. Roof hipped at ends. The south (garden) elevation is largely 1930s. Symmetrical and 3 bays with a central gabled 1930s porch of framed construction and a 1930s timber front door. 2 ground floor canted bay windows with hipped roofs, glazed with casements with square leaded panes. 2 first floor 2-light 1930s transomed casements with square leaded panes; 2 gabled attic dormers with similar casements. The elevation is clad with 1930s studs and rails with cement infill. This replaces weatherboarding and the studs and rails are said to match the framing behind. The north (rear) elevation, visible from the road has scattered fenestration. 3 first floor 3 over 3 pane sashes, probably late C19 or C20, one 5-light ribbon window, also C20, to ground floor left, the other windows are 1- and 3- light casements. 2 raking dormers to the attic. At the right end the roof is carried down as a catslide to the outshut to the kitchen addition which has a plank door and 2 windows.

Interior: Both principal ground floor rooms have exposed ceiling carpentry and open fireplaces. The east room is almost entirely lined with re-sited Breton and Flemish panelling, introduced in the 1930s and including panels sculpted in deep relief. The windows have some re-sited C19 stained glass. The first floor preserves some C17 doors. Wall-framing with formed jowls to the posts.

Roof: Apex not available at time of inspection (1989) but the design is probably a clasped purlin. The interior is virtually unaltered since the 1930s.
