5/120 The Old Rectory and attached
stable and outhouse ranges

- II


Rectory, now house and stables. 1815 by Thomas Cundy. Limestone ashlar, squared
rubble and some tile hanging; Welsh-slate roofs with ashlar stacks. L-plan with
service and subsidiary ranges. 2 storeys. Irregular front has, to right, the
main range with the wing projecting to extreme right and a 2-storey crenellated
porch in the angle. Gables have stepped parapets with triangular copings and
projecting kneelers, and have stacks with paired diagonal ashlar shafts. 12-pane
sash windows and some blind windows have plain architraves and label moulds.
4-centre arched porch entrance, with similar window above, leads to a 4-panel
door with fanlight. To left, probably added later, is a lower double-gabled
range, the front tile-hung above a wooden arcade, and to extreme left is a
projecting wing of the rubble service range to rear. 3-window elevation, to
right side of main range, has a gabled projecting right bay with a wide
4-centred archway at ground floor. Garden front, to rear, also of 3 windows,
breaks back in the right bay which contains a crenellated bay window at ground
floor; 4-window service range extends to right of it and bears the date 1815 on
its gable wall. Interior has original joinery and stairs. Subsidiary ranges
attached to the left end of the house and forming a 3-sided court include: at
the front, an irregular single-storey range with a wing returning forwards at
the extreme left; to rear, a stable range with a central pyramid-roofed 2-storey
section, with a 2-window front of segmental-arched 2-light casements, breaking
forward from flanking lower sections with dormers and loft doors. Noted as based
on a design obtained by Lord Jersey in 1812 from Henry Hakewill.
