GV II

Farmhouse, now house. Probably late C17 or early C18, extended in C18 and
further enlarged and altered. Hand-made red brick in Flemish bond, red tile
roofs. Approximately L-shaped plan formed by originally single-depth main range
with rear wing and various additions to this. Two-and-a-half storeys, with three
1st floor windows; plinth, 4-course band; segmental-headed doorway offset left of
centre (with C19 wooden latticed porch); 2 square segmental-headed 16-pane
sashed windows with exposed boxes to the left, and an added octagonal bay
window at the left corner; a single-light window and an added rectangular bay
window to the right; 3 segmental-headed 16-pane sashed windows with exposed
boxes at 1st floor (one to the left and 2 to the right); 2 gabled dormers with 2-
light casements. Gable chimneys. The left gable wall has inter alia a 6-pane sash
and a very small window at 1st floor, and two 2-light casements to the attic.
The rear wing is covered by a parallel addition on the left side, its rear gable
wall has 2 casements at ground floor and one above (all different), and a single-
storey service extension wraps round the corner and side. Interior: the left room
at ground floor has 3 stop-chamfered beams and a brick inglenook fireplace, the
right-hand room has one similar beam and a large brick fireplace, (central bay
altered by insertion of staircase); the rooms above these at 1st floor each have
a chamfered beam and a fireplace with iron grate (that to the left with a
circular hob, and the other a duck's nest type), and a large beam passes across
the front of the chimney breast in the left room (perhaps the remains of a
smoke hood); both attic rooms have fireplaces with similar beams across the
front.
