GV II

House. C17, remodelled in mid C18 and early C19. Chalk ashlar. Left wall in coursed chalk and sarsen rubble; right wall in sarsen rubble with chalk bands and connecting blocks. Old tiled roof to front; stone slate roof to rear; brick stacks. Complex plan incorporates L-shaped C17 house with mid C18 extension to front right so making a square double-depth plan. 2-storey, 4-window range. Flat hood over early C19 double doors and trellised porch. Chalk segmental arches of voussoirs over 2-light C20 casements; brick storey and eaves height bands; blind windows in each of 3 gables, the left hand gable with low left eaves encasing the C17 wing; ridge stack to left, lateral stack to right. 3-window range to left side, with projecting bread oven. Crow-stepped gable wall of late C17 wing to rear right has moulded limestone cornice: mid C19 rebuilding of the rear wall has made further interpretation difficult. Interior: mid C18 2-panelled doors in moulded architraves and C19 plank doors. Opposite front entry are straight-flight and quarter-turn stairs, with closed string and moulded balusters of c.1760-70. Front right room has plain mid C18 fireplace, adjoining china closet set in semi-circular arch with flanking reeded pilasters; moulded dado rail and cornice, some plain straight-cut panelling. Hall, landing and first-floor room to front right retain mid C18 panelling. C17 section of house to left and rear retains chalk fireplace with chamfered surround and chamfered and stopped beams and joists to left; exposed square-framing of original outer wall facing first floor room to right; left wing retains 3-bay collar-truss with butt purlins and, unusual for this area, a ridge beam notched into the apex. To rear right is late C18 coach house and dovecote, now cottage: one and a half storeys, retaining its square nesting boxes sunk: into the brick gable walls.
