8/115 Court Barton
Detached house, formerly a farmhouse. Early C17. Roughcast cob and stone rubble
with some brick patching. Gable end slate roof. 2-room, though-passage plan house,
with the main room to the left (with a plaster ceiling) and a wing to the rear of
this. Thus a symmetrical front is achieved by placing the service room at the rear.
Front rooms heated by internal end stacks; rear wing heated by partially external
and stack. All stacks with brick shafts, Main stairs placed in rear wing, service
stairs to rear of passage. 2 storeys.
Exterior Front: roughly symmetrical 3 window range. First floor with 4-light
timber casement windows, all with cyma recta surrounds, the outer windows with cyma
recta mullions and jambs, those to the middle window ovolo moulded. Ground floor:
5-light casement window to either side of doorway, both with cyma recta surround,
jambs and mullions, and with timber hood mould which is probably C19. All windows
with 10 leaded panes per light. Right hand end with no windows, gable wall rebuilt
in brick. Left-hand side elevation with 2 first floor casement windows of 5 and 2-
lights respectively, and a large 4-light window to ground floor of wing. Lean-tos
Interior: left-hand room with 3 cross ceiling beams. Only one plaster panel
survives of the ceiling, single ribbed, interlocking diamonds with flanking ogival
forms, and angle sprays; 2 of the beams retain their original plaster guilloche
decoration and ovolo moulding. Right-hand room with deeply chamfered ceiling beam
in hollow step stops. Early fireplaces may survive concealed in both rooms. Wing
end fireplace remodelled in C19. Some good C19 joinery; the doors and ventilator of
the former dairy survive intact.
The plaster ceiling is noticed by K and C French, 'Devonshire Plasterwork'
