5/30 Stickwick House and
- Farmhouse

- II

House, with farmhouse in left wing. Built 1780-2 for Robert Hole. Stone covered
with roughcast. Centre block has slated roof with a brick chimneystack in each
gable. Left wing has concrete-tiled roof with chimneystack in rear wall; right
wing has asbestos-slated roof. House consists of a tall double-depth centre block
with catslide roof over rear part; lower, 1-room-deep wing on either side. 2
storeys, with garret in centre block. The general shape of the house, including the
low wings, corresponds to that shown in a drawing of 1836, with relatively little
subsequent alteration, except in the right wing. Centre block has a symmetrical
front 3 windows wide with raised stucco quoins at either end. Doorway, in centre
bay of ground storey, has C20 door and porch; in 1836 there was an open-sided porch
with 2 columns in front supporting a triangular pediment. Windows have segmental
arches and triple wood sashes, the middle sashes with 6 panes each and the side-
sashes with 2 panes. All but the left-hand sash in each storey are C20
replacements. In the roof are 3 hipped dormer windows of 3 lights, the centre
lights of 2 panes, the outer lights of 2 smaller panes with a transom-light above;
the 1836 drawing, though sketchy on this point, suggests that they may have been
altered. The left wing is 3 windows wide, all but the left-hand ground storey
window (which is C20) having old 3-light wood casements with 6 panes per light;
these could be original, despite the fact that the 1836 drawing shows 2-light
casements with 8 panes per light. Centre doorway has wooden hood, possibly
original, on shaped brackets. Right wing has been completely re-windowed in C20,
though in character with left wing. Ground storey of left wing has its original
fireplace; remainder of interiors not inspected. The original building account
survives, showing that Robert Hole 'begun to lay the foundation' on 18 May 1780;
most of the work was completed by January 1782, but the final bill was not paid
until 25 October 1785. Chimneypieces were provided by Mr Robinson of Chudleigh.
The parlour and parlour chamber were hung with paper. The roof was slated from the
first. Lime ashes were used for the floors. Cost £591-10-8.
