Description


LYNTON AND LYNMOUTH

SS64NE LEE ABBEY
858-1/1/65 (South side)
05/07/76 Lower Lodge

II

Detached house. Probably c1875. Rubble, tile roof. A
picturesque building in elaborate Cottage Ornee style, central
entry to twin-gabled asymmetrical front.
2 storeys; 2-window range. Wood casements with mullions and
decorative cast-iron lights. The upper floor has two 4-light
under carved flat lintels with peaked heads, on slate cills.
Ground floor has a 3-light, with a canted 1:4:1-light bay to
the right beneath a pent roof on stone piers, covering also
the central pair of plank doors with fleur-de-lys hinges, and
side-light, under a straight moulded wood lintel.
The gables have rich triple-cusped barge-boards, carried on
elaborate carved corbels, returned also to the right gable,
with plain walling generally but one small light at ground
floor and a plain mid string. The left gable to the front is
jettied slightly on a series of stone corbels. The roof tiles
have scalloped ends, and there is a decorative clay ridge; to
the left gable, which is plain, is a large stack, with a
further ridge stack centrally. The rear is plain, with a small
gabled unit, possibly containing the staircase. INTERIOR: not
accessible.
A richly detailed example of a Lee Abbey estate cottage,
similar in style to Valley Lodge (qv), and Lee Cottage in
Martinhoe CP.
