GV II

Farmhouse. Mid C16. Timber framed. Ground floor cased in red brick,
colourwashed at the front. Upper floor has old plaster with small remains of
panelled work. Roof of old clay plaintiles. 2-cell form. 2 storeys and
attic. 3 windows, various casements, mostly old; 2 windows to upper floor
retain square-leaded glass. To left is C19 colourwashed brick gabled porch
with scalloped bargeboards; 6-panel door, the upper 2 panels glazed. Within
the porch is an older door with 6 raised and fielded panels. Internal stack
with axial red brick shaft. Later, smaller stack to left, just to rear of the
roof ridge. Lean-to additions on each gable end with steeply-pitched roofs.
Interior. On the ground floor both rooms have roll-moulded bridging beams and
chamfered joists. Good fully-moulded C16 door by stack in parlour (to right).
Close studding on upper floor with reverse-curved braces at the corners.
Original window openings have deep sills. Left cell has original attic floor
with chamfered joists. C16 newel stair (2 flights). Queen-post roof, all
bracing missing. Rafters re-set on edge, with a ridge piece. A valuable
example of a good quality C16 farmhouse which has not been heavily restored.
