St James' Vicarage and attached
coach house

II

Small villa with attached coach-house, now vicarage. c.1800,
altered. Red brick in Flemish bond, with sandstone dressings
and slate roof. Rectangular double-depth plan. Two storeys
over cellars, 3 bays, symmetrical, with stone plinth,
rusticated quoins, moulded cornice, low parapet and shallow
hipped roof. The centre, slightly recessed under a giant
semi-circular blind arch, has a wide basket-arched doorway
with gauged brick head, rendered inner surround, 6-panel door
with panelled jambs and narrow side windows, and fanlight with
Edwardian stained glass, and at 1st floor a 12-pane sashed
window (4-panes in the upper leaf, 8 in the lower), raised
sill, and lintel partly covered by the arch. Flanking the
centre, the ground floor has 2 very large canted bay windows
(probably mid C19 additions), each of 4 lights sashed without
glazing bars, with a cornice and a blocking course with a
central upstand, and the 1st floor has tripartite sashed
windows with raised sills and wedge lintels. Side wall
chimneys. Left return wall has one blind window on each floor,
and a small sashed window with glazing bars; right-hand return
wall altered (former service wing at this end demolished);
rear has small lean-to in centre, a 4-pane stairwindow above
this, a 16-pane sash to the left and 2 at 1st floor, and steps
down to a cellar doorway (now blocked). Linked to the west end
by a short screen wall is the former coach-house, a small
square single-storey building, with quoins, a large square
window, and pyramidal roof.
INTERIOR: cellar ceiling supported by slender cast-iron
columns; dog-legged staircase with cast-iron ornamental
open-work balusters.
