GV II

Farmhouse,now office. Later C18, altered. Red brick in Flemish bond (sides and rear in English garden wall bond), composition tile roof. Rectangular double-depth plan. Two storeys, a symmetrical 3-window facade; central round-headed doorway (now blocked) with imposts, under shallow C20 porch imitating open-pedimented C18 doorcase; altered windows with small-pane glazing, those at ground floor enlarged and furnished with C20 bows and those above with C20 tilting casements, all these windows with flat-arched heads of gauged brick. Dentilled wooden eaves cornice; gable chimneys. C20 single-storey addition at left end. The rear, facing the barn (q.v.), has a C20 porch to the back door but is otherwise almost completely original, all the windows having wooden mullions and transoms: 2 large segmental-headed 6-light windows on each floor, all with small panes and mostly with a horizontal-sliding sash opening in the centre of the lower tier (but that to the right at ground floor with restored joinery in matching style except the opening, which is a top-hung casement). Below the other ground floor window are 2 semicircular steps (the upper of wood), probably a former milk-churn stand. Interior altered. Forms group with the barn approx. 10 metres north.
