6/104 Rectory Farmhouse

Rectory, now farmhouse. Early C17 with later additions and alterations.
Uncoursed limestone rubble; stone slate roofs. H-plan. 2 storeys and gable-lit
attics. 1:3:1 bays; late C18/early C19 tripartite Gothic glazing bar sashes with
slender wooden colonettes to ground and first floors of cross-wings and
casements in similar style to attics, all with dripmoulds. Dripmoulds also to 2
mid-C19 casements on first floor of main range. Blocked doorway to right of
centre in main range has C19 casement to each side. Mid-C19 two-storey gabled
porch projecting in angle with left cross-wing has contemporary segmental-headed
6-paned sash to first floor directly above segmental-headed 6-panel door. Small
ridge stack to right cross-wing, which has more prominent end stack to rear
gable. Rear. Short gabled range (open to ground floor and supported on square
chamfered stone column on one side) attached to right cross-wing. Left return of
left cross-wing has 3-light ovalo-mullioned window with dripmould on each floor
to right. Internal lateral stack to centre with dripstone and paired and rebated
shafts with moulded capping. Segmental-headed archway to left over recessed C20
glazed double doors. Gable end of main range has a 2-light mullion window to
attic and a mullioned and transomed window to first floor, both with dripmoulds
and a C20 canted bay projection. Slightly lower range attached at right-angles
to main range has a mullioned and transomed window with dripmould and a ridge
stack with dripstone and 3 attached and rebated shafts with moulded capping.
Interior. Only partial inspection possible at time of resurvey (April 1987) but
noted as having semi-winder staircase in hall of main range with stick balusters
and open string. Left gabled wing has boxed cross beam and square heavy joists
and chamfered Tudor-arched stone fireplace on ground floor. C20 single-storey
flat roofed addition attached to rear of rear left range is not of special
architectural interest.
