7/96 Devon House
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 with tall
rear lateral stack heating right-hand room.
Plan: 2 room plan, with direct entry into the larger heated right-hand room, a
passage partition has been removed, the passage originally leading directly to
staircase which runs up behind the lateral stack. C19 and C20 alterations have
obscured the original plan, but a blocked doorway to the upper storey suggests Devon
House and Fernside (q.v.) adjoining on right side were at one 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, Devon
House incorporating the 'hall' and lower end of a 3 room-and-through-passage plan,
Fernside incorporating the 'parlour' end; and both the principal rooms (ie hall and
parlour) being heated by rear lateral stacks. The C18 remodelling thus involved the
heightening of the range by the addition of the second storey and rebuilding the
facade in brick. It is also possible to judge by the discontinuous plat-band that
the left-hand room may have once formed a carriage-way through to the rear courtyard.
Exterior: 3 storeys. 2 window range. Early C19 fenestration intact to upper 2
storeys, all 16 paned hornless sashes, those to first storey have slightly cambered
brick arches. Brick plat-band between first 2 storeys extends from Fernside and ends
abruptly under the right-hand window of Devon House. Twin 12 paned sashes to left of
C20 door and 20 paned sash to right.
