Listing Text

SX 77 SW
6/57 Buckland Court


Large house, empty and in a poor structural condition. Early C19. Stone rubble
with some red brick. Front and left gable wall covered with mathematical tiles, the
remainder rendered. Slated roofs with rendered brick chimneys, rear wing to right
has mansard roof. Plan consists of a long rectangular main range with a central
entrance facing south-east and a variety of projections at the rear. Behind that
(not separately listed) are the farm buildings. 2 storeys, with garrets in front
range. 5-window front to south-east, the centre bay built out as a large bow. In
ground storey of this bow is a formerly glazed door with narrow flanking windows,
these in turn divided and flanked by rendered pilaster-strips; above them is a plain
frieze, moulded cornice and blocking course. Venetian window at either side of bow.
In centre of second storey is a tripartite window, with 2 narrower windows at either
side. 5 hipped dormers with slated cheeks.
Interior largely gutted, though a few doors, fireplaces and fragments of moulded
plasterwork remains. The building is listed because its exterior form is largely
intact and because it occupies an important position at the entrance to Buckland
hamlet. It is also one of only 6 examples of mathematical tiling known to exist in
Devon. Attempts are being made to preserve the building, and the left-hand rear
wing has been renovated.
White's Directory of Devonshire, 1850, says that E.R.P. Bastard, Esq., "has a
handsome seat here called Buckland Court, which was enlarged and beautified about 25
years ago, by the widow of the late John Pollexfen Bastard, Esq."
