GV II*

House. Early C18 with late C19 wing to the right. C17 wing to the rear right of the main house. MATERIALS: coursed limestone rubble with Ham Hill stone plinth and dressings; slate roof with stepped stone coping and brick stacks to gable ends. PLAN: 2-unit central-staircase plan with older rear wing to the right. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attic and basement; symmetrical 5-window range. 3 roof dormers; those to the sides have pedimented gables, the central one has a segmental-arch to the gable. The moulded cornice steps forward above the rusticated pilasters and returns to the sides. All windows are late C19 horned 2/2-pane sashes in moulded architraves. The 8-panel door, with panelled reveals, is set in a moulded architrave with a pediment on consoles. The basement, to the right, has a 3-light window with hollow-moulded stone mullions, that to the right is missing. To the right, filling the space between No.3 and No.5, (qv) is a 2-storey; 2-window range, mid C19 extension with stone slate lower courses to the roof, C20 two-light casements to the first-floor, an ashlar canted bay with an off-set stone roof and a 4-light, stone mullioned and transomed window to the front of it. To its right is a pointed-arch door with overlight, and to the far right is a carriage entrance of the same height with a shallow pointed arch; a platband runs from the right, to the eaves of the bay. The first-floor of the rear of the house has an early C19, round-arched, margin-pane stair window to the left, a small pointed-arch window to the centre and a 2-light stone-mullioned window to the right. The wall to the ground-floor was probably rebuilt in the early C19, when the elliptical arches were constructed, using the original 2-light stone-mullioned window to the right, and the planked and studded door in a Tudor arch with sunk spandrels to the left. The rear extension is 2 storeys; 2-window range, with C20 windows and door under wooden lintels. INTERIOR: essentially early C18, with raised-and fielded panelling and high dado rails; later fireplaces. The diagonally-laid stone-flagged hall has an open-well, open-string, oak staircase with 3 turned balusters to each tread, fretted ends, an oak handrail swept to the top, and, with the curtail step, wreathed at the foot. Hall is panelled below the dado rail and has moulded architraves to 6-panel doors. The room to the left has oak floor-boards, a box cornice, and is entirely panelled, including the shutters; an early C19 deep elliptical-arched recess in the rear wall, has re-used the original panelling and has similar, C19, in the soffit and a reeded architrave; C20 fireplace. The room to the right is simpler, with a dado rail, cyma-moulded cornice, early C19 elliptical arch to the rear, late C19 fireplace and an inserted Spanish wall cupboard to the left. The landing on the first-floor is panelled to the egg-and-dart cornice. The roof of the main house is 5 bays, ridge purlin in notched apex, with trenched purlins and pegged collars. The entrance to the attic of the late C17, 3-bay, rear wing is through a C17 panelled door; re-roofed, probably in early C19, it has part of a horizontal planked partition and closing latches to a door jamb. The cellar, under the rear wing and extending to the front, has stone steps and floor, with a drainage channel to the centre; it has a segmental barrel vault, the rear end of which has a C17 moulded cornice and ribs forming a star-shape. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: spearhead railings with urn finials and scroll supports, on a Ham Hill stone plinth, enclose the forecourt. One of a group of 3 early C18 town houses in Church Street.
