10/262 The Old Vicarage and house - adjoining at the north

GV II

Vicarage, now divided into 2 properties. 1837 (datestone) by Edward Blore. Rock- faced stone with plinth brought to course with stone dressings. Gabled slate roof with rock-faced stone stacks with diagonally-set grouped ashlar chimney shafts with moulded caps. Tudor style with mullioned windows and an irregular plan of 2 parallel blocks with a crosswing to the left (south) and a lower service wing to the right (north). The service rooms to the north under a lower roofline are now a separate property. 2 storeys. The main entrance elevation faces east and has an asymmetrical 5-bay front, the 2 right-hand bays are the former service wing. The 3-bay main block has the slightly projecting gable of the crosswing to the front at the left-hand with a coped gable with kneelers and a pinnacle. Similar smaller gable to the left-hand end of the service wing which has a large projecting stack with paired chimney shafts. The porch, in the second bay from the left has a coped gable, kneelers and a pinnacle. The pointed arched outer doorway has a hoodmould and a half-glazed door with 3 pointed lights with timber Gothic tracery. 1-, 2- and 3-light windows on the east elevation have casement windows with glazing bars, the 2- and 3-light windows with moulded stone architraves and chamfered mullions. The larger windows to the main block have hoodmoulds, the service wing has a 2-light transomed stair window. The garden elevation, facing south, is gabled to the south at the left-hand end and has a gabled projection with a ground floor 4-light bay window. Contemporary fenestration with mullioned windows intact. The west elevation has a 2-tier canted bay with a pyramidal slate roof, contemporary fenestration intact. There is a small C20 single-storey addition on the west elevation. Interior Principal rooms not inspected but said to be complete. The property which was formerly the service wing has a modernized interior but retains a contemporary stair with stick balusters and a ramped handrail and a cellar stair with cast iron balusters. The roof profile with tall chimney shafts makes an important contribution to the centre of Milton Abbot village. Correspondence in the Bedford Estate Papers shows that the original designs for the vicar by Blore were supervised and altered by the 6th Duke of Bedford and the Duchess.
