5/42 St Michael's House


Rectory now sheltered home. Probably C15 with C19 and C20 alterations. Cement
roughcast over extremely thick stone walls, under graduated greenslate roof with
C19 coped gables and kneelers; original cement-roughcast chimney stacks. 2
storeys, 2 bays, with flanking gabled wings: hall with cross wings. Central
recessed 2-bay section has C19 panelled and glazed door in original pointed
chamfered arch with hoodmould, but heavy C20 restoration. C17-style
stone-mullioned windows in hall and wings of 2, 3 and 4 lights, some with
mullions removed and all with moulded sills and dripmoulds. Right wing has
unusual projecting upper-floor left return wall on corbels. Both wings have
large stepped external chimney stacks. Left wing return wall has C20 windows in
plain reveals. Rear extensions have large C20 windows. Interior of right wing
has a former external pointed-arched doorway, only recently uncovered, which is
similar to the entrance doorway and this, with the consistent thickness of the
walls, suggest that the hall and wings are of one build. Blocked inglenook in
ground-floor room right. Rear C17-style staircase. An extremely interesting
and rare survival of a hall-house more common in the south of Cumbria. Former
stable to right, now warden's house, is not of interest.
