SX9056 CHURCH ROAD, Churston Ferrers
1946-1/5/60 (East side)
10/01/75 Churston Court Farmhouse incl.
courtyard of service buildings &
garden walls


Farmhouse. Mid C19. Squared stone rubble with quoins and other
details in dressed Devonian limestone and red sandstone.
Slated roof. Squared stone rubble chimneys, formerly with
brick shafts; now only rendered stumps.
Double-fronted main range with centre entrance leading to
staircase. Rear wing to right, forming one side of an enclosed
service courtyard to left. This has former wash house and ash
house. 2 storeys with garret. Designed in C16/C17 Cotswold
farmhouse style, though without the stone-mullioned windows
and (with one exception) hoodmoulds. 3 windows wide, the
centre window in a gabled projection with kneelers; the quoins
of red sandstone, contrasting with limestone elsewhere. Centre
doorway has 4-centred chamfered arch of voussoirs; red
sandstone jambs and hoodmould. At either side a slit window.
Windows have flat arches with limestone voussoirs; wood
mullioned-and-transomed window frames with horizontal glazing
bars. Gable ends similar, with parapet copings and kneelers.
INTERIOR: wooden staircase with thin square balusters and
turned newels.
Subsidiary features: buildings in service courtyard
single-storeyed. Ash house loaded from a flight of stone
steps, emptied through a small brick-framed hole at ground
level. Stone rubble garden walls; tall on north-east and
north-west, low on the other 2 sides. That on south-west side
has a chamfered coping of stones on edge; it curves inwards
towards recessed square gate piers with pyramidal caps.
Churston Court Farmhouse is a well-preserved mid C19 layout of
uniform architectural character. It has always been part of
the Churston Court Estate. The farm buildings are separately
listed (qv) and with the farmhouse form a complete and fine
group of its date.
