4/69 Foxhole Manor
Farmhouse. Circa late C17. Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings,
turnerized rag slate roof hipped at left end, gabled at right end of main range, rear
wing hipped at end. Main range with axial stack with brick shaft to left, stone
stack with brick shaft at right end. 3 room and through passage plan with the hall
and inner room heated from the axial stack. The inner room appears to have been in
use as a kitchen at one time, the lower end is heated. The rear of the through
passage leads into a rear right wing which is probably an C18 addition. A single-
storey lean-to in the angle between the wing and the main range is probably a late
C19 or C20 addition. 2 storeys. Long asymmetrical 5-window front with the through
passage doorway to the right and an open porch with a slate roof supported on granite
monoliths. C20 French windows on front at left. 1 small 12-pane C19 casement to the
left of the front door with stanchions intact, elsewhere the fenestration is regular
C20 3-light casements.
Interior Hall fireplace with ashlar jambs and a replaced lintel, the inner room
with 2 roughly hewn cross beams and a fireplace with ashlar jambs and a chamfered
lintel. The through passage is slated. C20 roof trusses. The plan, with the hall
stack against the inner wall is unusual in the region, and in Devon generally.
