GV I

Hall. 1823 by John Foulston. Stucco; roof hidden by parapet;
stuccoed end stacks. Egyptian style. Rectangular plan.
2 storeys; symmetrical 3-bay front with tapered roll-moulded
architraves framing each bay in the shape of a pylon. Coved
hoods surmount the side bays and there are similar but smaller
hoods above the 1st-floor windows. Tripartite windows to
ground floor single lights above; original patterned glazing.
Central recessed porch is flanked by 2 Egyptian columns. The
porch is approached by a flight of stone steps and there is
pergola-like wrought-iron basket-arched frame in front of the
porch.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
This building is unique in the Plymouth district; probably its
nearest rival is the Egyptian House in Chapel Street,
Penzance. Part of an important group of civic structures by
Foulston, some of the most remarkable for their date in the
country.
(The Buildings of England: Pevsner N: Devon: London: 1989-:
