This is an extremely complex house of several periods which is built mainly of squared limestone rubble with Bath stone dressings, Welsh slate roofs and lead flats. There is one formal ashlar front in Bath stone (Queen Anne Wing), the north west walls and the inner courtyard are rendered and painted, some chimneys are rendered, and the service court is mostly in red brick. There is an open entrance courtyard; an enclosed courtyard entered through the mediaeval gateway, a south wing and a service courtyard on the north. The building is currently in nine residences:-
Itton Court No 1 (the medieval part and the south wing)
William and Mary Wing Nos 1-3
Queen Anne Wing
Itton Court North Nos 1-3 (service court and old butler's house)
At resurvey the south and west fronts with the entrance courtyard and the inner courtyard, the roofs and the interior of Itton Court No 1 were inspected.
The entrance courtyard, which is the Oriel Wing on the north and the old part of the house (No 1) on the east, is in the Tudor style, but only the entrance tower is actually medieval, probably Cl4, the rest is 1895-1910. Square three storey entrance tower with pointed arch and timber double doors, 2-light window above, stair slits on the left, battlemented parapet on machicolations, taller stair turret to the left. L-shaped two storey Oriel Wing with mullion-and-transom leaded windows, two canted oriels on the upper floor, cill string, battlemented parapet. Taller stair window in the L with two transoms. Two timber framed gables in the angle. Single storey wing to left. South wing to right of the tower (No 1), five windows with two storey canted bay on the right hand end. This front has six different Tudor window types and a tall stack with an external flue. This wing then turns to the east at a lower level with the later billiard room wing, canted corner window with a gable and smaller battlements, otherwise similar in character. The internal courtyard has the William and Mary Wing on the north side. This is rendered and painted and has sash windows with glazing bars and small dormers in the roof. Backing onto the south east side is a discrete block which was added in the early C18, the Queen Anne Wing. This wing has a formal two storey and attic, seven bay facade with the three centre bays set forward under a pediment. Plat band between the storeys. Nine over nine pane sashes to the windows except the first floor centre one. Central doorway with half glazed double doors, pedimented hood on brackets over this. The window above the door has paired arched lights, this is likely to be a Victorian alteration. Six 4-light gabled dormers, the inner ones set behind the pediment. Roof hipped overall with two large stacks. This facade has only been inspected at distance. There is no rear elevation to this block which backs onto the courtyard wing. The outer facades on the north and west sides have not been inspected, nor have the interior facades of the service court.
