THURLESTONE Clanacombe

(Formerly listed as Clannacombe)

G. V. II Manor house. Late C16 or early C17 extended in C19, modernised in late C20.Coursed and roughly dressed slatestone walls. Gabled slate roof. 3 rubble stacks to front range, one axial and one at each gable end, also one to central rear gable. Axial stack to single storey rear wing. Plan: slightly unusual variation on 3-room-and-through-passage plan. Larger room to left of passage with smaller room to the right, both heated by fireplaces in the end wall. At the far right end is a further very narrow room. At the rear of the passage is another heated room in a short wing. In front of the passage is a full-height porch. Considerable internal alterations have taken place and there is now no passage but one large room at the left-hand side of the house. A series of rather complex additions were made behind this left-hand end at various stages up to the early C20 including an entrance stairhall. Single storey service wing extends to rear of left-hand end. Exterior: 3 storeys. Symmetrical 5-window front with small gable over each top storey window, and with central 3 storey porch. Stone eaves cornice and plinth. All late C20 casement windows of 2, 3 and 4-lights with single top-opening lights to top storey. Porch has roundheaded South Hams arched doorway with glazed C20 doors behind. Circa late C19 conservatory at right-hand end of house. In the left-hand projection at the side of the house is an ovolo-moulded wooden doorframe dated 1674. Single storey service wing extends to the rear. From the left-hand end of the front wall a stone garden wall extends with another round arched doorway. Interior: much altered in late C20 but simple late C17 moulded plaster ceiling with circular garland is preserved in room to right of porch.
