7/302 The Rectorial Glebe Farmhouse
- (formerly listed as Glebe
10.7.57 Farmhouse)

Former rectory, now a farmhouse. C17, extended in the C18 and C19. Coursed shale front with granite quoins, slate sills and shallow brick arches over the openings. Asbestos slate roofs with brick chimneys over the gable ends; the roof sweeps lower at the rear over shallow outshuts.
Plan : overall L-shaped, double-depth plan. Originally 2 rooms with parlour, left, and slighty larger hall, right, with cross passage between. The shallow outshut behind the parlour and the stair hall were probably added circa early-mid C18 to provide apple store over cellar and stair hall. Probably there was a kitchen behind the hall, but rebuilt circa early-mid C19 with large gable fireplace with service room within outshut on its left and with single storey room beyond. 2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 5 window south front with the doorway central to the fenestration but all grouped slightly towards the left. C20 top-glazed door and circa early C19 16-pane hornless sashes all in their original slightly arched openings; there are 2 C20 buttresses: one buttress between the left hand and second from left windows and another buttress on the right of the right hand windows. In front of the right hand gable is a C17 moulded kneeler stone. The other windows are mostly 16-pane sashes; there are 2 18-pane 3-light casements to wider openings lighting the rear room.
Interior : C18 features : plaster ceiling in parlour with oval central moulding with carved oak leaves (possibly late C17); moulded plaster cornice to entrance; 6-panel doors to front room; open-well open-string stair with column-over-column turned balusters and moulded handrail over turned newels; large hall fireplace with timber lintel and large dressed granite stone oven and 2-panelled doors to the chambers Roof replaced C20, formerly containing attic rooms.
