GV II

Country house. Mostly early to mid C18 rebuilding of earlier house, altered
and extended in later C19 (by Waterhouse). Coursed dressed sandstone, slate
roof. Irregular plan, of which the principal element is a rectangular front -
range. Two storeys, 9 x 5 bays, in classical style; symmetrical facade, with
5-bay centre breaking forwards slightly (formerly pedimented); former porch
replaced with single-storey ashlar conservatory of 5 x 3 bays, with pilasters
separating very large windows which fill each bay (except entrance in
centre), each window having 4 tall panes in each leaf, cornice and panelled
parapet (concealed by creeper at time of survey); otherwise, slightly-
recessed sashed windows on each floor, those at 1st floor with margin panes;
cornice and balustraded parapet carried round the whole. Hipped roof of low
pitch with 2 ridge chimneys. Left return wall has cornices to ground floor
windows; added 2-bay wing to rear, the 1st bay with large canted bay window
at ground floor, and 2 dormer windows above, with pedimented surrounds, and
the other 2 full storeys with a balustraded parapet. Right-hand return wall,
stepped out towards the rear, has, inter alia, the architrave of a former
doorway relocated in the rear portion.

Interior: the principal feature of interest is an oval stairwell to the rear
of the entrance hall, which has in the centre an unusual wooden flying
staircase mounting in 2 flights and returning in one, with open string and
slender turned balusters and handrail which carry round the landing
surrounding the central well; this landing surrounded by an Ionic pilastrade,
with entablature and dentilled cornice, under a domed ceiling with central
skylight; panelled doors with moulded architraves and cornices.
