GV II

Farmhouse, subsequently 2 cottages, now office. Probably mid C16; altered in C17
(principally by addition of brick south gable wall incorporating chimney). Timber
frame with colour-washed brick nogging (some in herringbone pattern), red tile
roof. Rectangular single-depth 3-bay plan, probably originally of the smoke-bay
type; with a short rear wing added at each end. Two storeys and 3 unequal bays,
the first being the widest and the centre the narrowest; with a plinth, 4 wall-
posts with braces to the wall-plate, a mid-rail, and some light studs; the ground
floor has board doors in the 2nd and 3rd bays, altered 3- and 2-light casements
in the 1st bay, 2 single-light casements in the 2nd bay and a small 6-pane sash
in the 3rd bay; the 1st floor has a 3-light casement window under the eaves in
each bay, those in the first 2 bays with pegged frames, external lugged hinges to
the central opening, and diamond lattice glazing, and the 3rd with altered glazing
in the outer lights. Chimneys at both gables, that to the left with coupled flues
and a very prominent moulded cornice. The rear has exposed timber-framing
similar to that at the front. Interior: jowelled wall-posts, large spine-beams in
the 1st and 3rd bays, and a cruder spine beam in the centre bay (probably
added); a large brick inglenook fireplace at the south end, with bread oven in
right-hand side (under staircase in this corner); mortices of former wooden
diamond mullions in head and sill of window at 1st floor of 3rd bay; floored
attic over 1st and 2nd bays; re-used rafters with smoke-blackening and 2 sets of
carpenter's marks. (Reference: Domestic Buildings Research Group Report No 2900).
