House, formerly mansion house of the Reynell family until they moved to West Ogwell
in 1589. It was in ruins by 1793 ( R Polwhele, History of Devonshire, 1793, Vol.2,
p133). C15 or early C16, the southern end rebuilt early C19; C19 and C20 single-
storey lean-to's on north side. Stone rubble with slate roofs. Main body of house
consists of 2 parts; 1) 3-storey L-shaped building to north, probably the 'parlour'
end of the original house. Main range runs north-south, having on its south gable
(concealed in roof-space of C19 range) the weatherings for the roof of a building
on same axis, now demolished. North gable has relieving arch of a former large
opening on ground storey. Above, rising through second and third storeys, a tall,
partly blocked window with a 2-centred arch; it now contains a C19 wood casement in
second storey and a C19 or C20 wood-framed window in third storey. East wall has
in centre a projecting chimney stack with set-offs. To left, in ground-storey,
relieving arch of a blocked window, cut into by C20 window. Above, a C19 wood
casement window. Corbel table under the eaves of roof. On west side, L-wing
projects to right. In ground storey of west gable a blocked doorway, now partly
below ground, chamfered and with a 2-centred arch. To right of it a small
rectangular window, its lower part blocked, with chamfered jambs. Above it 2
similar staircase windows, the upper one blocked. Small C20 inserted window to
right of second storey. To right of third storey a flat-headed two-light window
with cinquefoil ogee heads to lights. Corbel table under eaves to right-hand side.
In angle of the L a small rectangular turret, possibly a former wardrobe; small C20
window in north face on second storey. Above, corbel table under eaves, matched
(but not exactly) by a piece of corbel table adjacent on north-south range. 2) 2-
storey range to south, with roof hipped at south end. South front 2 windows wide
with C20 metal casements, except for C19 wood casement to right of second storey.
West front has chimney-stack to right with tapered top. To left, single-storey
gabled entrance porch with seat inside; beaded wood door-frame and plank door with
long strap-hinges. Above, segmental-headed window in second-storey containing C19
wood casement with small rectangular panes and quarter-lights. Interiors:
