Listing Text

SX 99 NW
3/62 Cowley Manor
- II
Large house, now 3 dwellings, remodelled and extended in C18 and C19. 2 major
blocks lie parallel to each other on a SW/NE axis. The southernmost (and older) of
these is of Thorverton stone, the latter in rendered stone, and they are linked by
a small unrendered stone wing that is not bonded into either. A further C19 wing
extends to the N. 2 storeys throughout. Slate, gable end roofs. The older block
has an end stack (to left), and a back, lateral stack (which now emerges from a C20
porch). Front windows and door, although altered, reveal original 3-unit plan. To
the left of the doorway (which is itself left of centre) are one window to each
floor with 6-pane casements; the middle room has one 4-pane casement to each floor;
the right-hand room (probably the former parlour) has an early C19 12-pane casement
above another window which has been converted into a garden door. Gable end to
right displays post-1850 canted bay at ground level, 2-light 12-pane sashes above
and a C20 attic window. The other block lying parallel to that just described has
an axial stack and 2 modern brick chimneys, C19 fenestration and early C19 heavy
quoining. Interior (not inspected): the former parlour (right-hand end room) of
the older block contains nice early C19 internal shutters, parallelled door and
moulded cornice, and a large Thorverton stone C16 fireplace with a 4-centred
segmented arch and ovolo moulding.
