Details

NORTH TAWTON THE SQUARE, North Tawton SS 60 SE 13/118 Broadhall 22.2.67 II GV House, now incorporating shop. Late C15 or early C16 extensively remodelled and extended in C19. Plastered and exposed stone rubble walls with some granite ashlar. Gable ended slate roof. 2 brick gable end stacks. Projecting original front lateral stack of stone rubble with granite ashlar quoins and tall shaft with tapering cap with moulded dripcourse. Plan: originally probably 3-room and through passage plan but now very much altered. What survives of the early house is probably just the passage to the left and the hall to its right with projecting window bay and adjoining lateral stack. The whole building has been heavily remodelled internally in the C19, the inner room rebuilt as a shop and a late C19 wing added at the rear. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front with shop to right and projecting gabled bay window at centre. To left is original 2-centred moulded granite arched doorway with arched hoodmould and C20 plank double doors. Early-mid C19 16-pane sash window above. Chimney stack projects immediately to right of doorway with large window bay beyond it and a chamfered plinth extends around both. On the ground floor the bay consists of an ornate 8-light mullion window which includes 1 light on each side. The lights have 4-centred arched heads and 4 original mullions survive which are ornately carved with a delicate leaf design which continues round the square head above each light. The other 3 mullions, presumably replacements, are of granite, moulded at the top and bottom. On the first floor is a C19 3-light transomed window with leaded panes. The gable has C19 decorative bargeboard and finial. A small stone roughly inscribed with the date 1689 is above the mullion window but was actually found in the garden of the house and placed here earlier this century. To the right of the bay is a circa late C19 double shop front the right-hand part which also has a late C19 first floor shop showroom window above, an interesting feature. Interior: early feature may survive, particularly a fireplace, but they are completely concealed by C19 and C20 alterations. The roof was totally replaced in the C19.
