- II

Large country house, near site of earlier house, in landscaped gardens overlooking
River Dart. Built in 1829 with circa mid C19 extension at rear (north). Tudor
style. Dressed local grey limestone with freestone dressings. Slate roof with
gabled ends with mould bargeboards, finials and crested ridge. Two storeys and
attic. 2:1:2 bays. Centre projecting and gabled. Two-light ovolo moulded stone
mullion windows with hood moulds, centre ground floor four-light and first floor
three-lights with cusped heads. Similar small single-light attic window in gable
above. Large circa mid C19 wing to rear (north) with principal east elevation
gabled left and right, with projecting gable to left with gabled porch. Plain
stone chimney stacks at ridge. Interior not inspected
but is said to contain "some good specimens of ancient carving" (Kelly's Directory
of Devon, 1883, page 410). This may refer to the remains of manor house qv which
are situated to north. Waddeton Court is the seat of the Studdy family, and Henry
Studdy was the founder of the Royal Dart Yacht Club in 1866 when it had club rooms
in the Royal Dart Hotel qv, until its own premises were built in 1881.
