19/01/51 Pilton House
Large house, now residential home. 1746 on documentary
evidence, but probably built on site of an earlier house
(Reed) and remodelled in first half of C19 and again c1900.
Plastered; hipped slate roof behind parapet; stacks with
rendered shafts with moulded cornices and old pots.
Deep plan, 2 rooms wide, the front block with probably C19
canted bays at either end and a central entrance. Service
courtyard to NW; C20 single-storey wing added to NE.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 7-bay front. Plain parapet with moulded
string below and simple coping. Rusticated quoins to left and
right; platband at first-floor level. Windows have moulded
architraves. Steps up to central Doric porch with tiled roof
and 2 columns to either side and a pedimented gable with
triglyph frieze, guttae and moulded brackets. 6-panel door.
All windows glazed with 9 over 9-pane sashes except the outer
ground-floor windows which have been altered to high transomed
casements. Similar casements to canted end on E side.
Return elevations also have sash windows with lower-roofed
service block attached at N end with gabled slate roof and end
stack with old pots. A wing at right angles (on the same axis
as the main range of the house) projects to the W and fronts
onto a small serice or stable yard with a tall coped wall to
INTERIOR: only partially inspected, C19 joinery survives and
there may be other features of interest.
HISTORICAL NOTE: Reed records that the house was built in 1746
for Robert Incledon, 2 successive Incledons who lived at the
house were Recorders of Barnstaple. James Whyte, who owned the
house from 1806 for over 40 years was probably responsible for
some of the remodelling.
