GV II

Unoccupied house. Probably C17 with C19 alterations and additions. Granite rubble
walls partly rendered. Gable ended thatched roof which extends in catslide over
rear additions. 3 rubble stacks, one axial and one at each gable end.
Plan: Original plan likely to be 3-room and through-passage with lower end probably
to the left. If the stacks are all original the inner and lower rooms were both
heated by gable end stacks and the hall by an axial stack backing onto the passage.
The lower room may have been remodelled in the C19 and C19 outshuts were added at
the rear of it and the hall.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical. 3-window front with doorway to right of centre. All
windows and doorway are boarded over. The left-hand end projects slightly. At the
rear are outshuts to left and right of centre. What appears to be a single storey
wing projecting from the left end of the rear elevation is in fact a detached
outbuilding over which the thatched roof has been extended.
Interior inaccessible at time of survey.
