LANGFORD BUDVILLE CP
Farmhouse. Late medieval, ceiled early C17 and linked to detached range of uncertain
date, much altered c1856 when gabled dormers added, mullioned windows renewed and
inserted, and porch rebuilt; minor alterations early-mid C20 including infill of
columnar porch. Red sandstone random rubble, partly rendered, roughcast on facade,
timber framed roughcast porch, slate roofs, coped verges, paired brick stacks gable ends,
lateral stack rising on rear wall of hall. L-plan: thought to be double ended open hall
house ceiled with stair turret opening out of hall; former detached parallel range
to west linked nith 2-storey porch on north front. One and a half storeys, 1:1:2 bays,
all 3-light ovolo moulded mullioned windows, gabled dormers with coped verges and
finials, full height gabled porch with 2-light mullioned window, ashlar depressed
4-centred arch doorframe, similar moulded wooden inner doorway. Left return fronting
road: 2 storeys, 2:1:1 bays, gable ends linked by wall without visible butt joint,
C19 and C20 2 and 3-light ovolo moulded mullioned windows: north front with
chamfered depressed 4-centred arch doorframe, partly renewed. Interior not
seen, said to contain evidence of smoke blackening on chamfered arch braced trusses
indicating double ended open hall house, moulded door frames to rear of through passage
and stair turret, renewed lintel to lateral fireplace, and 6-panel compartment
ceiling with chamfered beams to inner room, now kitchen, The porch on the north
front is said to be post date the stair turret, around which it is constructed, and
to have been originally timber framed. The rear range is said to have an unusual
kitchen fireplace complex with evidence that an oven and curing chamber formerly
existed to the rear of the fireplace, rather than to one side as is normal in Somerset.
The evolution of the house is difficult to determine without an internal inspection.
This was part of the Chipley Park (qv) estate Nynehead CP and a barn to the
north-east, (not included due to alterations) bears a datestone inscribed "1856
A Sandford Esq", probably the date of the alterations to the house.
A watercolour by W Wheatley in the Braikenridge Collection, Taunton Castle shows the
house prior to alterations in the 1840s.(VA6 Reports, unpublished SRO, January 1980
and August 1982).
