SS 6814-6914
(west side), Chulmleigh
7/97 Fernside
House. Probably C17 core but heavily remodelled and refronted in C18. Painted brick
facade with stone rubble cob and lath and plaster to rear. Thatch roof, hipped at
right end. Brick shaft to tall rear lateral stack and tall rendered stack with
offsets to gable end of rear wing.
Plan: single principal room heated by rear lateral stack to right of entrance
passage. Stone outshut with stairs running up rear of stack enclosed by gable ended
2-storey rear kitchen wing of 1 room plan with C20 lean-to to rear of passage and
extending to left of Devon House (q.v.). C19 and C20 alteratons have obscured the
original plan, but a blocked doorway to the upper storey suggests Fernside and Devon
House (q.v.) adjoining to left side at the time connected and the shared brick facade
suggests they were possibly in single ownership in the C18. Indeed it is possible
that the core of the plan of the entire range is C17, Fernside incorporating the
parlour end, and Devon House the hall and lower end of a 3 room and through-passage
plan, both the principal rooms (ie hall and parlour) being heated by rear lateral
stacks. The C18 remodelling thus probably involved the heightening of the range by
the addition of the second storey and rebuilding the facades in brick.
Exterior: 3 storeys. 2-window range. Early C19 fenestration intact to upper 2
storeys, all 16 paned sashes, those to first storey have slightly cambered brick
arches. Brick plat band between first 2 storeys. Ground floor has two 4-paned
sashes to right of doorway with C20 4 panelled door, the upper 2 panels glazed.
Interior: Largely altered in C20. Slight coving to principal room ceiling. Rear
kitchen wing fireplace has timber lintel with diagonally cut stops. Roof structure
largely replaced 1986 but C18 trusses with straight principals and pegged lapped
collars survive.
