01/12/77 Ivy Lodge
Lodge, later farmhouse and now private house. Probably c1806
with substantial late C19 additions. Stone rubble. Slated
roofs entirely concealed by parapets, except in late C19 farm
building to right. Red brick chimneys at rear.
2 storeys. The original lodge takes the form of a Gothic
gatehouse, its slightly recessed centre with a wide
carriage-gate having a moulded, almost 4-centred arch; the
latter is unusual in that the sides are straight. Within the
opening are cast-iron gates hanging from open-work gateposts,
all of them decorated with quatrefoils and trefoils. Inside,
the arch has ribbed vault and at either side is a moulded
doorway with pointed arch and studded panelled door. At rear,
4-centred arch matching that at the front. To left of the
front arch is a slit window and to right a small wood
casement. In the upper storey are 3 slits in the form of
crosses, the ends of the arms developed as small circles. Tall
battlemented parapet on top, front and back.
To left is a square tower, apparently added in late C19 along
with substantial living accommodation at rear. Front is
battlemented to match the gatehouse. 2-storeyed canted bay
window also battlemented; sashes throughout, those in centre
lights with margin-panes.
Long plain former farm building to right; a single wood
casement window with glazing bars at left-hand end of upper
HISTORICAL NOTE: the lodge is said to have belonged to Yeotown
House, built by RN Incledon in 1806. Drawing of Yeotown House,
but not the lodge, in North Devon Athenaeum.
