Warmington's Garage


Large house, now garage with flats above. Mid C19, but said to
retain substantial portions of the first house on the site,
built in 1692. Solid rendered Italianate front. Slate roof.
Rendered chimney on each side-wall of front range, the moulded
caps decorated with large-scale egg-and-dart.
L-shaped plan with double-depth front range and rear wing to
left; staircase right of centre in rear section of front
3 storeys; 3-window range. Ground storey wholly cut away
(apart from a few structural walls) to insert garage.
Ground storey has 2 large, inserted garage-entrances, but
origianl doorway remains in centre. Half-glazed door (probably
an inner door originally) with 2 solid moulded panels in the
lower part. Moulded cornice at sill-level in second storey.
Outer windows in upper storeys are of 3 lights; middle windows
of 1 light. Second-storey windows have pilasters between and
flanking the lights, these supporting entablatures.
Third-storey windows have moulded eared architraves and
bracketed sills. Both storeys have plain sashes; upper sashes
in the 3-light windows have curved top corners, while sashes
in the middle windows (probably later replacements) have
horns. Grand top entablature with dentilled architrave and
bracketed cornice.
INTERIOR not inspected, except for staircase in front range.
This is of mid C19 character up to first floor, with ornate
cast-iron balusters and continuous wooden handrail. Above that
it has pulvinated wooden strings probably dating from the 1692
house; thin, square balusters of C19. According to J R L
Thorp: 'The room over the kitchen .... has a moulded plaster
cornice and good bolection chimneypiece .... A rear block
behind the left end of the house contains some particularly
good joinery and plaster detail'. The building now occupies a
site originally laid out by the Feoffees of the Long Bridge
(now the Bideford Bridge Trust) and first leased in 1692 to
Thomas Hammet, merchant.

Conference at Bideford: 1987-: BRIDGE TRUST DOC).
