The Vicarage


Vicarage. Built 1835 to designs by William Burgess, a significant local architect.
Plastered random rubble sandstone; gable-ended slate roofs. Double-depth, central
hall plan house, principal rooms to either side of entrance, the stairs giving off
the hall to the right and leading to a first floor central landing, which serves the
main bedrooms, each with their adjoining dressing rooms; a rear service wing has
been demolished. Lateral, rear and axial stacks heat ground and first floor rooms,
all with brick shafts. 2 storeys.
Exterior Front: symmetrical, 3 bays, the centre bay projecting as a 2 storey porch,
narrower than the flanking bays. First floor with 2-light casement windows with
transoms, 4-panes per light with margin panes, all under timber hood moulds. Ground
floor: side bays with French windows, otherwise the details as above; central
doorway with depressed ogee arch, also with a wooden hoodmould, double, half-glazed
doors with overlight. The porch has a pretty plaster ribbed vault with the date
(1835), and is lit from the sides by small lancets. Left-hand (garden) elevation:
3 bays, symmetrical, the outer bays separately gabled (each with quatrefoil in gable
wall), 2-light casement windows (as front) to first floor, French window (as front)
to ground; the centre bay very narrow, with single light window to first floor,
French window below, the details in all respects similar to the other windows.
Rear: plain, altered, with a shallow central turret that looks like a later
addition. Right-hand elevation: asymmetrical, with 12-pane hornless sash windows,
and a tall 2-centred-pointed window to stairs, also with a 12-pane hornless sash,
and intersecting glazing bars in head.
Interior: Contemporary fittings intact: dog-leg curved stair with stick balusters,
plaster cornices to main rooms; timber and polished limestone chimneypieces.
Uffculme Vicarage is a good house of its date, and (with the exception of the rear
wing), remarkably intact both internally and externally, it is probably the least
altered of this architect's domestic works.
