Villa. Probably circa 1870. Random grey limestone with freestone and brick
dressings; stone stacks with rendered shafts; 1980s asbestos slate roof with hips,
gablets and gables with deep verges with scalloped bargeboards on moulded corbels.
Eclectic High Victorian Gothic with a wide variety of details and rugged outlines.
Plan: Deep rectangular plan, the garden elevation facing south with an entrance on
the east side with a large entrance hall with the stair to the rear (west) and
service blocks to the north.
Exterior: 2 Storeys and attic. South elevation with asymmetrical canted bays to left
and right, the right hand bay 2-storey, the left hand bay rising to the attic storey
and gableted to the front, 1 ground floor and 2 first floor windows between the bays.
The left hand bay has large plate glass sashes in shouldered or segmental headed
architraves with polychromatic relieving arches to the ground floor windows and a
pointed slit window to the attic. The right hand bay is rendered with tall pointed
ground floor windows, the centre 2 divided by a shaft with an Early English capital,
a quatrefoil frieze at first floor level and plate glass sashes in shouldered or
segmental-headed architraves. 3-light plate glass sash windows to ground floor
centre with corbelled lintels; 2 first floor 1-light sashes with shouldered
architraves. The entrance (east) elevation is gabled to the front to the right with
a handsome glazed verandah with a lean-to roof with gables and gablets and slender
arched lights. Tall pointed doorway with timber tracery in the head, tall 2-and-3
light plate glass windows with shouldered architraves to the ground floor; shoulder-
headed windows to the first floor except for first floor right which is a 3-light
plate-glass sash window with a brick relieving arch. The west elevation has a
gableted projection containing the tall transomed 2-light stair window with a pointed
arch and cusped upper lights, shouldered doorway with projection with a 1-light
window beside it. Gable to the front at the left end with 2-light windows to the
first and ground floor. To the right of the projection there is a doorway with a
pointed architrave and a 1-light shouldered first floor window. The service block to
the north under a 2 span roof is also very complete with casement windows with brick
and polychromatic dressings, the larger windows transomed.
Interior: Not fully inspected at time of survey (1987) but appears to be very
complete with a good open well stair, joinery and chimney pieces.
The only Gothic villa in Bishopsteignton, ambitious in design and very intact.
