- II
House, formerly the rectory. Circa 1830 - 40, but with some C18 fabric and later
C19 addition. Plastered stone walls. Hipped slate roof. 3 rendered brick stacks.
Plan: central block has entrance passage leading to stairhall with principal room
to either side each of which has axial passage behind and service rooms or smaller
rooms to the rear. In recessed section at either is another sizeable room with
service room behind and there is an apparently C18 range at the right-hand end
extending to the rear. Another later C19 range runs parallel to the rear of the
left-hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 1:3:1 window,front of 3 bays with marginal glazed
20-pane sashes. French windows on ground floor to the left, that to the right is a
similar sash window to the one above. Central 4-panel C19 door behind later C19
verendah which has chamfered posts and incorporates a conservatory at the left-hand
end. A tall wall, partly castellated, extends from the right-hand end of the house.
Recessed range set back from this end with leaded pane C18 or C19 casements. Taller
parallel gable-ended range behind central and left-hand ranges. Original stair
window with arched head visible at rear of central section.
Interior: room to left of entrance has decorative plaster cornice and ceiling band
as does left-hand end room which also incorporates an early to mid C19 marble
chimneypiece. Entrance passage and room to right have simple moulded cornices. The
staircase has decorative wrought iron balusters, a mahogany wreathed handrail and
carved tread ends. The right-hand end of the house contains several C18 2-panel
doors, otherwise early C19 6-panel door prevail.
This is a very complete and unspoilt example of a good quality early C19 vicarage.
