3/25 The Old Rectory


House, formerly rectory. Structure probably largely C18, but possibly with
earlier core, and then refaced in the mid C19. Stucco over brick with plain
tiled roof. Two storied with attics, main range with two cross wings in
plan. Present doorway is in smaller gabled bay to left, and there is an
earlier door to the left of the main range. Left hand gabled wing of 1 bay,
the right hand wing of 2 bays. Windows are all C19 openings with stuccoed
heads with keystones, but the glazing is renewed. Stucco to walls conceals
plinth and sill band in main range and right hand wing. Ornate barge boards
to overhanging eaves. Axial stack between main range and right hand wing,
others in side walls and on inner face of left hand wing. The two stacks
associated with the right hand wing are of early very narrow brickwork, and
one has a dentilled plinth detail. Centre of rear elevation is built out in a
mid Cl9 canted wing, with sash windows to ground floor and Palladian window to
drawing room above. Modillion eaves cornice.
