GV II

Large detached house. Early to mid C19. Rendered, slate roofs.
A parallel range villa with a gabled cross wing at either end
to a recessed centre; the wing to the right is cut off at an
obtuse angle to accommodate the steep and narrow hill at this
spot.
2 storeys. The formal front is in 1:3:1 windows, 12-pane
sashes across the first floor, all with hoodmoulds with
dropped ends. The ground floor has margin-pane French doors,
except to the right-hand wing, with a 12-pane sash; the
openings in the wings have hood moulds as above. To the left
of the recessed centre is an opening to a throughway. The
left-hand (E) return is 2-windowed, with 12- or 16-pane
sashes, including a ground-floor flat-roofed bay. A stack to
the rear of the ridge in the left wing, and to the outer eaves
of the right wing. The main entrance is centred to the back,
at the upper level because of the rise in the ground, with a
gabled panelled doorway. There is a 15-pane stair sash, and
various other lights on this front. Flat-roofed one storey
extension to east side.
INTERIOR not accessible, but some windows appear to have
panelled shutters.
