8/115 Huntshaw House
Rectory, now house. C17 origins; rebuilt 1836 by Thomas Illman
of Bideford. Colourwashed stucco over coursed slatestone rubble;
hipped slate roof; rendered end stacks with moulded drip courses.
L-plan with front right wing. 2 storeys; 2-window range to each
front wall. C20 porch to left, to C20 doorway. Flat rendered
arches over 12-pane sashes and tall 15-pane sash lighting stairs.
Similar sashes to right side wall. C20 door to rear. Interior:
early C19 panelled shutters and doors; early C19 semi-circular
staircase with stick balusters, fret-cut brackets to open string
and wreathed handrail; early C19 marble fireplace to right. The
plan and other features of the present rectory suggest that it
represents a drastic remodelling of an older house. Illman
recorded that his rectory replaced one of stone and cob.
(Devon Record Office, Exeter, Faculty Petitions (No. 1 for
Huntshaw, has plans, elevations and reports by Illman).
