casements. Central C20 door in moulded stone surround, either side
is 4-light hollow-chamfered mullioned casement with moulded headed
lights, moulded string course carried over door lintel, cyma-
moulded plinth. First floor has 4-light mullioned window as ground
floor either side of moulded recessed bull's-eye. String course to
plain blocking course with saddleback coping. Left return, garden
front is very similar to front, but has half-glazed door to left of
centre, C19 hipped attic dormer with 2-light casement. Right
return has small 8-pane sash to left, first floor has 3-light and
2-light mullioned casements with arched lights, second floor with
3-light mullioned and transomed window with reused arched lights
and hoodmould, string courses. Rear has planked door in beaded
case to right, three 4-light hollow-chamfered mullioned and
transomed windows and 3-light leaded casement to left, first floor
has 3-light mullioned casement and C20 mullioned casement, two
gabled dormers with 2-light casements to left, eaves raised in
brick to right.
Interior: Room to right of entrance has stone Tudor-arched
fireplace, C17 wainscot panelling and some C18 panelling, 6-
panelled doors or wainscot doors with cock's head hinges in ovolo-
moulded cases, exposed joists. Room to left of door has stone
Tudor-arched fireplace inserted in open fireplace, other stone
Tudor-arched fireplaces in rear sitting room and first floor.
Western bay of barn incorporated into house late C17 and floor
inserted, during C20 renovation work a dais or platform was found
against the east timber-framed partition in this bay. The lower
ceiling height and exterior window level of the east half of the
house, together with thick internal walls and poorer rubble stone,
suggests that this part of the building contains an earlier
structure, rebuilt c1700 when present facades and fenestration
added. History: Manor of Hill Deverill held by Ludlows from C14,
passed to Coker family in 1650s and then to Duke of Marlborough
1738. The present building may be associated with the Coker
family, although it may represent the rebuilding of an earlier
structure, the house, associated farm buildings and Chantry Cottage
occupy a moated site. (R. Colt Hoare, Modern History of South
Wiltshire, 1822.)
