House, former rectory. Early - mid C19. Stucco walls, either brick or
stone rubble; brick stacks and chimneyshafts; slate roof.
Plan: double depth house No 30 with a front and back room either side
of central entrance hall with main stair to rear. The principal rooms
are those at the front and most rooms are heated by lateral and axial
stacks. Service block No 26 on left (west) side is now in separate
occupation. 2 storeys with secondary glasshouse to rear.
Exterior: symmetrical 3-window front. The first floor windows are 12-
pane sashes with shutters and the ground floor widows are tall 8-pane
sashes (the left one used as a french window). Central doorway contains
original 6-panel door with overlight, panelled reveals and large flat-
roofed Doric porch with moulded entablature. Each end the front wall are
plain flat stucco clasping pilasters rising from the plinth to a band
under the eaves. The eaves are carried on plain modillion-like brackets
and the iron gutter has lions mask joints. Low pitch roof is hipped to
right and gable-ended to left. The right (west) end has a 4-window
front in the same style as the front. The service block No 26 is lower,
plainer and contains mostly 12-pane sashes.
Interior: not inspected but is said to contain a great deal of original
joinery and other detail.
