Rectory converted into a nursing home. Late C18 or early C19, converted into
a nursing home in circa 1985. Rendered stone rubble, rear wing is said to be
built of cob. Slate hipped roof of 2 spans. Stacks in side walls with red
brick shafts.
Plan: Double depth plan with 2 principal front rooms and a central entrance
hall leading to a stairhall at the back of the right hand side; this rear
range may be earlier. In circa 1985 the house was converted into a nursing
home, a single storey flat roofed addition was built on the right hand side
in the angle with the rear wing, but the plan of the main house has been
largely retained.
External: Symmetrical 3 bay front . Original tripartite sashes with glazing
bars diminishing in height towards the top, the ground floor have 12 panes
flanked by 4 pane sashes, the first floor 9 panes flanked by 3 panes and the
top floor are actually casements of 6 panes flanked by 2 panes. Good central
doorway with moulded architrave with fielded panel reveals and an entablature
with fluted frieze and dentilled cornice which is broken forward at either end
where is is supported on console brackets.
The symmetrical 3 window rear elevation has 2-light sashes with glazing bars
and central first floor round-headed stair window with original sash with
radial glazing bars.
The service wing on the right hand side at the rear is 2 storeys with a hipped
roof and a lower gable-ended roof at the rear; C19 2 and 3-light casement
windows with glazing bars. C20 single storey addition in the angle at the
front with a flat roof.
Interior: Narrow entrance hall with a segmented arch to the stairwell at the
rear which has an open-well (almost a dog-leg) staircase with stick baluster
and moulded handrail ramped up to turned column newels and an open string with
scroll tread ends. Much of the original joinery has been replaced but the
doorcases seem to be largely intact. The left hand front room has a later
C19 plaster cornice and a circa late C19 or early C20 Georgian style
chimneypiece. The other rooms have been altered.
