8/57 Old Budley Court
House. Circa 1830-40, renovated in early C20. Plastered stone rubble including
some cob; brick or stone rubble stacks with plastered brick chimney shafts, 2 with
Rolle Estate chimney pots; slate roof (originally thatch).
Tall T-shaped house. Main block faces south. It has a 2-room plan with central
cross passage back to the rear block. The stairs rise off the left of the passage
to left (south) of the front room. Front rooms have gable-end stacks. Kitchen and
service block with end stack projecting at right angles from the middle of the main
block. 2 storeys with attics and basement to main block.
Symmetrical 3-window front arranged around central doorway. C19 4-panel door and
fanlight with radial glazing bars. Queen Anne style hood on shaped consoles is
probably Edwardian. Doorway is flanked by Venetian windows containing dashes with
top radial glazing bars. First floor 12-pane sashes. Plain eaves and roof is
gable-ended. Each end wall contains a segmental-headed casement with glazing bars.
Right end has a 12-pane sash and left end has a round-headed sash similar to those
in the front Venetian windows to the stairs. Roof of rear block has hipped end.
Interior is well-preserved with C19 chimneypieces and a great deal with original
joinery detail including an open string stick baluster stair. The roof however was
rebuilt in the early C20 leaving only the lower sections of the original principals.
These have a noticeably steeper pitch than the later roof indicating that the
original roof was probably thatched.
