2/213 Luckington Court (formerly listed as Luckington Court Farmhouse) 12.12.51


House, c1700, for H. Fitzherbert, on C16 or earlier core, restored 1921 by Easton & Robertson for E. Johnson-Ferguson. Colourwashed roughcast on rubble stone with stone slate roofs and ashlar stacks. Two storeys. Principal range is L-plan with facade to east and south, c1700, the south probably refacing earlier work, which is more apparent in the north west service range. Five window east front with hipped roof, moulded coping to parapet and corner urns. Eighteen-pane thick-glazing-bar sashes in ovolo-moulded stone surrounds. Two lead downpipes. 1921 central door, Grinling Gibbons style carved wood surround and fielded panelled double doors set in ashlar semi-circular Roman Doric porch with two columns and pilaster responds. Doors and surround are said to be re-used. Similar 4-window south front with 4-shaft ridge stack and 2-shaft west end stack, the window bays not evenly spaced. Slightly set-back 1921 west end matching additional bay with projecting ground floor 3-bay loggia. North end of east front has similar 18-pane upper window and ground floor c1921 lean-to. To right, part of original range is visible with ridge stack and west end stack, north gable over 2-light mullion-and-transom ovolo- moulded mullion window each floor. To right, 1921 service wing running north. Interior: bolection-moulded hall fireplace. Two panelled c1700 rooms on south side with bolection-moulded fireplaces, the fireplace in south east room apparently an earlier, possibly early C16, opening. Enclosed stair with panelled dado and turned balusters to landing. Mullion and transom stair-light of original house is now internal and upper part of spiral staircase remains. Said to be on the site of a manor owned by King Harold before 1066. Owned by the Fitzherbert family from C17 to early C19. (The Field, 24 November 1984).
