5/136 St Michaels Church House


House, probably schoolmaster's house. The date may be coeval with the original
schoolroom, built in 1848 by the Ven. Archdeacon Woollcombe, but stylistically
appears to be rather later. Dressed local grey limestone rubble with red brick
dressings and a gabled asbestos slate roof; 3 chimney stacks with red brick shafts.
Tudor style. Asymmetrical plan, the main range with a front left and rear right
crosswing. The building adjoins the school and is conspicuously-sited on the corner
of Fore Street and Newton Road.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1 window front to Fore Street with the gable end of a
crosswing to the left and the long side of the main range to the right with a
projecting lateral stack with set-offs. All the openings have cranked brick arches
with stone keyblocks, the windows with stone sills. Front door into the main range
in the angle between the wing and the main range, slated porch canopy in the angle
supported on trefoil-pierced timber brackets. 3-light ground floor casement in wing,
3 panes per light. Similar 2-light first floor casement.
1+1 window elevation facing Newton Road, the gable end of the main range to the left,
the crosswing with a gabled dormer with pierced bargeboards. Ground floor windows 3-
light casements, 3 panes per light; first floor windows similar 2-light casements.
Interior not inspected.
An attractive C19 house on a prominent site in the centre of town.
