Listing Text

4/146 Rectory
Rectory to collegiate Church of St Endellion (qv), possibly built as one of four
prebendary houses. Circa early C17 but remodelled in circa 1840s when the eaves were
raised, in circa 1860s or 70s when the cross wing was added on the right and in circa
1960s when the interior was partly remodelled and an extension was added to the rear.
Stone rubble, slate roof with gable ends and brick stacks on gable ends. Circa
1870s. Cross wing on right-hand side with gable end to front with side lateral
chimney stack.
Original plan uncertain. Possibly 2-room and through passage plan with smaller room
on left and larger hall on right. However, the C20 interior remodelling has removed
much of the evidence. Further extended on right with the C19 cross wing of 1-room
2 storeys overall 5-window front. Earlier range on left with regular 4-window front
with raised eaves and small buttress to left of entrance with some indication of
rebuilding on front and left-hand side elevation. Hornless sashes and brick
segmental arches to openings with entrance to left of centre. Ground floor with C19
12-pane sash on left, C20 part glazed door with stone rubble mid C20 porch erected by
one of rectors and C19 3/6 and 5/10 pane sashes on right. The right-hand opening has
a dressed stone segmental arch. First floor with 4 early-mid C19 12-pane sashes,
probably contemporary with the raising of the eaves. Cross wing with double C19 sash
on ground and first floor and slit in gable end to attic. C20 extension to rear.
Interior remodelled in circa 1960s, partitions altered stair renewed and chimney
pieces rebuilt. Larger probably hall kitchen on right in C17 range with 2 fairly
heavy chamfered and unstopped ceiling beams. Small niche in rear wall, original use
uncertain, possibly a creamery. Several C18 2-panel doors with original HL hinges on
first floor. Roof replaced in circa 1840s with indication on gable ends of earlier
steep pitch.
Group value with Church of St Endelienta (qv).
