Details

CHULMLEIGH SOUTH MOLTON STREET SS 6814-6914 (west side), Chulmleigh 7/96 Devon House 20.2.67 GV II House. Probably C17 core but heavily remodelled and refronted in C18. Painted brick facade with stone rubble, cob and lath and plaster to rear. Thatch roof with tall rear lateral stack heating right-hand room. Plan: 2 room plan, with direct entry into the larger heated right-hand room, a passage partition has been removed, the passage originally leading directly to staircase which runs up behind the lateral stack. C19 and C20 alterations have obscured the original plan, but a blocked doorway to the upper storey suggests Devon House and Fernside (q.v.) adjoining on right side were at one time connected and the shared brick facade suggests they were possibly in single ownership in the C18. Indeed it is possible that the core of the plan of the entire range is C17, Devon House incorporating the 'hall' and lower end of a 3 room-and-through-passage plan, Fernside incorporating the 'parlour' end; and both the principal rooms (ie hall and parlour) being heated by rear lateral stacks. The C18 remodelling thus involved the heightening of the range by the addition of the second storey and rebuilding the facade in brick. It is also possible to judge by the discontinuous plat-band that the left-hand room may have once formed a carriage-way through to the rear courtyard. Exterior: 3 storeys. 2 window range. Early C19 fenestration intact to upper 2 storeys, all 16 paned hornless sashes, those to first storey have slightly cambered brick arches. Brick plat-band between first 2 storeys extends from Fernside and ends abruptly under the right-hand window of Devon House. Twin 12 paned sashes to left of C20 door and 20 paned sash to right.
