ILFRACOMBE

SS44NE Damage Barton
853-1/1/1
15/06/51
(Formerly Listed as:
LEE
Damage Barton including ancillary
buildings and courtyard wall)

GV II*

Farmhouse. A complicated building history: C16 (or earlier)
origins, altered and extended in C17 (probably c1656 when some
of the farm buildings were constructed: see Damage Barton,
barn) and with later modifications.
Rubble local slate, rendered; Welsh slate roof.
PLAN: The house is now a 4-unit building comprising 3 rooms in
series and a cross wing. One room and the wing are under a
considerably lower roof line than the others.
The units under the lower roof line probably formed the
original hall and a higher-end wing (which internal evidence
shows to be a separate build); the through passage lies within
the lower end which was raised in the C17 when the fourth unit
was also added.
EXTERIOR: Front (ie now facing the principal farmbuildings,
north): irregular fenestration. Passage entrance with wide
doorway in early surround and porch with Tuscan columns. To
left a window of 4 lights, and above two of 3 lights (the
lintels at eaves level), all with stone mullions and surrounds
with ovolo mouldings. The added room to the extreme left
stands forward a little under a catslide roof and has a
separate doorway under penticed hood, the door quarter glazed;
2-light window to left, and a 3-light window to 1st floor.
That part of the elevation under the lower roof line has
2-light gabled dormer over Yorkshire sliding sash; projection
to right under catslide and wing (with shallow external end
stack), both elements with Yorkshire sliding sash windows.
Rear: two large stacks, one internal with set-offs (to E), the
other external with penticed extension and outbuilding at
foot. Rear passage doorway with pegged and moulded surround.
To the right a 3-light ovolo-moulded window with stone
mullions and surround. Various later lean-to additions.
INTERIOR: flag floor to passage which is divided from the
adjoining rooms by internal stone walls; ledge doors. Room to
west (possibly the former hall) has ceiling beams with large
ovolo or quadrant moulded chamfers and spear-head stops; wing
contains timber newel stair. Other rooms with roughly
chamfered ceiling beams. Door between two left-hand (E) rooms,
panelled, in an ovolo-moulded surround with high-set stops.
Upper floor with traces of plaster cornice work. Large
difference in floor level between right-hand (E) rooms of main
range.
