1/93 Nos 1 & 2 Ebford Barton
- II

2 dwellings, formerly a single farmhouse. C17, much altered in the C19 and C20.
Roughcast cob on stone footings with brick patching; half-hipped and gabled end
thatched roof. Originally probably a 3-room, cross-passage plan house, with the
higher end to the left of a now dismantled passage; hall heated by a rear external
stone lateral stack with off-sets; service end heated by a cob end stack; both
stacks with brick shafts. The inner room appears to have been largely rebuilt in
the C20 at which time the rear parlour wing was probaly reduced in height to a
single storey; it retains some ovolo moulded windows. A barn of late jointed cruck
construction (i.e. possibly of C18 or C19 date) was added to the higher end on the
same alignment as the main range. A service-end extension, possibly C18, stands
forward of the plane of the main front. C20 stair turret to the rear of this
latter feature. 2 storeys.
Front: 3 window range; with three 2-light casement windows to both floors.
Recessed bay to the left of this with a 2-light casement window to each floor
represents part of the C20 reworking of the inner room; front wing to the left with
late C20 2- and 4-light casement window. Service room extension with a shallow bay
window, all windows C20. Similar C20 fenestration to right-hand end elevation and
rear, except for one C17 2-light casement window, with chamfered mullion and
surround. Parlour wing with two 3-light C17 windows, with ovolo moulded mullions
and jambs, and a double cyma-recta surround; all timber. The barn is partly of
cob, but the front has been largely rebuilt in brick; however the front blades of 6
jointed crucks have been re-used here; the rear principals rest on the wall plate;
the whole is nailed rather than pegged, and looks very late.
Interior of house; service room (Lower Ebford Barton) with Heavitree stone
fireplace with chamfered cranked wooden lintel with scroll stops; ceiling beams to
this room and hall (Ebford Court), with scroll and step stops. An early C18
fielded panel door to Lower Ebford Barton.
