HALWILL FOXHOLE SX 49 NW 4/69 Foxhole Manor - GV II Farmhouse. Circa late C17. Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings, turnerized rag slate roof hipped at left end, gabled at right end of main range, rear wing hipped at end. Main range with axial stack with brick shaft to left, stone stack with brick shaft at right end. 3 room and through passage plan with the hall and inner room heated from the axial stack. The inner room appears to have been in use as a kitchen at one time, the lower end is heated. The rear of the through passage leads into a rear right wing which is probably an C18 addition. A single- storey lean-to in the angle between the wing and the main range is probably a late C19 or C20 addition. 2 storeys. Long asymmetrical 5-window front with the through passage doorway to the right and an open porch with a slate roof supported on granite monoliths. C20 French windows on front at left. 1 small 12-pane C19 casement to the left of the front door with stanchions intact, elsewhere the fenestration is regular C20 3-light casements. Interior Hall fireplace with ashlar jambs and a replaced lintel, the inner room with 2 roughly hewn cross beams and a fireplace with ashlar jambs and a chamfered lintel. The through passage is slated. C20 roof trusses. The plan, with the hall stack against the inner wall is unusual in the region, and in Devon generally.
