SX 98 SE LYMPSTONE CHURCH ROAD (north side),
Detached house. Late-C16 or earlier core, much modified, particularly in the early
C19. Plastered cob on stone footings: gabled-end slate roof. What appears
externally to be a Regency house was formerly a 3-room, through-passage plan, the
higher end to the left of the passage, with a service-end rear wing. Rear lateral
stack heats hall; service end wing with a large axial stack with set-offs
(previously once an end stack); internal end stacks to both this wing and inner
room; all with brick shafts, some plastered. 2 storeys.
Front: 4-window range, 2 and 3-light casements to 1st floor, 2 panes per light and
margin panes; ground floor with one 3, and two 2-light casement windows, as above,
with a French window, with transom and margin panes; a verandah once extended across
the entire width of the front, but survives now only over the doorway which has
panelled reveals, the door glazed with rectangular fanlight. Both ends of main
range with cusped bargeboarding. Right-hand elevation with French window, and 2
casement windows to 1st floor, all glazed as front; other windows are C20.
Interior: with ceiling beams, chamfered, hollow moulding to hall; cross beams,
chamfered with hollow step stops to wing. 1 chamfered door surround in wing.
Roof: not inspected; it is possible that 2 jointed crucks survive above the
