5/16 The Old Rectory
House, formerly the rectory. Late C18/early C19. Stuccoed, blocked-out volcanic
stone rubble, hipped slate roof, 5 brick stacks.
Plan: U plan with a rectangular south-facing main range linked to a parallel narrower
service range by a short block on the right east side. There was probably a narrow
service yard between the wing and main range but undergrowth makes this difficult to
establish. The single depth main range is 2 rooms wide with a central entrance into
a hall with an open well stair lit by a skylight behind. The left hand room is
heated by an axial stack ; the right hand room by the right end stack. A 2 room plan
block at right angles to the main range at the rear right links the main range to the
service range, which has been converted into flats.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 3 window front with steps up to a Tuscan stone porch with
entablature, timber front door with rectangular fanlight. First floor window above
porch a 12-pane sash ; outer windows 16-pane sashes with louvred sun shutters to the
ground floor windows.
The east elevation has 5 first floor 12-pane sashes ; 1 ground floor sash to the
left, then a French window with glazing bars, then 2 more 12-pane sashes ; panelled
door into linking block ; 2 right hand C20 casements with glazing bars. The north
elevation of the service block has first floor sash windows.
Interior The principal rooms have good contemporary detail with internal shutters and
Adam style chimney-pieces. The stair has stick balusters, turned newels, a ramped
wreathed handrail and a curved balustrade on the first floor.
