SX 99 NE POLTIMORE
5/153 The Old Lodge at Poltimore - House 11.11.52 - II
Former lodge to Poltimore House. Late C18. Stone, formerly rusticated, rendered, with hipped slate roof concealed behind parapet; single central stuccoed stack with moulded cap. Polygonal, single-storeyed. Side faces with later bay windows, each bay with 3 horned sash windows, 6 panes above 6 panes to central sash. Entrance face with round-headed doorway, 6 panel door with recessed panels, under blocked fanlight with 2 bars; heraldic panel in recess in parapet displaying Bampfylde arms, lions rampant regardant. Faces immediately to either side with C18 round-headed sash windows, panes intact in that to right- hand side, intact in upper sash only to left-hand side. The building was derelict at time of resurvey visit (October 1984); the rustication (visible in old photographs) remains, obscured by thick rendering and could be disclosed without difficulty. A piece of architecture of disarming simplicity. Low plinth, the cornice on plat-band has been rendered over and perhaps cut back too.
