4/225 The Old Rectory
House, formerly the Rectory of Trevalga. Circa 1820s. Rendered stucco with
chamfered quoins. Slate roof with hipped ends and rendered brick end stack on right.
Rendered stone rubble curtain walls with battlemented parapets masking detached
service outbuildings on right, of stone rubble with slate roofs and gable ends and
remodelled outbuilding on left with C20 flat roof.
Plan: Double depth plan; the garden front of the house, which is also the front
elevation faces north-west looking out over the fields to the sea; the house was thus
planned to take account of the fine views irrespective of the prevailing winds.
There are 2 reception rooms on the front, the larger room on the right, both
originally heated by end stacks. The entrance is in the centre of the right hand
(south west) side elevation and leads into a lobby behind the right hand reception
room, and on into a central stair hall. To the rear of the lobby on rear right was
probably a service room, in the centre on the rear a stair and to the rear left
possibly a study. Attached to the front elevation of the house are battlemented
curtain walls which are probably C19, possibly contemporary with the house. These
walls mask the detached service range on rear right which contains a dairy wash-house
etc and a garage probably remodelled from the coach house and stable and what is
possibly a service building on left which has been remodelled in the C20. In circa
mid C20 a door was inserted in a window opening in the centre of the front, north
west elevation.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 3 window front faces north west. 2-centred arched openings
with hood moulds, chamfered quoins and unmoulded string course above ground floor.
Two 16-pane horned sashes on ground floor and 3 similar sashes above, possibly
replacing original sashes which had 2-centred arched heads and intersecting glazing
bars. Central C20 glazed door in window opening on ground floor. Battlemented
curtain walls with blocked 2-centred arched openings, the left hand side remodelled
in the C20. The curtain wall on right has a door which leads through to the entrance
to the rectory and a garage door has been inserted in the gable end on right. To
rear of this curtain wall is a single storey outbuilding, probably originally the
coach house and stables with dairy and wash house beyond.
Interior : Front reception room on right has an ornate moulded early C19 plaster
cornice with floral trail and roundels in the corners. C20 fireplace. Smaller
reception room on front left has a simpler plaster cornice with multiple roll mould;
the reveals of the window are moulded and there are remains of the panelled shutters.
Open string stair with stick balusters and mahogany rail.
