5/8 Combe Head


Former manor house. Early C19, said to be a remodelling of an early C17 house.
Stuccoed stone rubble with a hipped roof behind a parapet ; rendered end stacks.
Plan: U plan with a single depth main range containing the principal rooms with a
central entrance into a stair hall and rear left and right wings. Centre rear
projection with a 2 span hipped roof partly fills the rear courtyard. The surviving
features all appear to be early C19 but the plan form suggests the possibility of
fabric surviving from the pre C19 house.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-bay front with a central porch with paired
pilasters and a moulded cornice ; moulded cornice below parapet. Fenestration of
early C19 16-pane sash windows. Sash windows to the left and right returns, casement
windows to the rear. Round-headed rear stair window with Y tracery and margin
Interior: Early C19 features survive including plaster cornices and a good stick
baluster stair.
A photograph in the possession of the owners shows a former orangery adjoining at the
right end of the main range, demolished circa 1960.
