ST 01 SE UFFCULME BRIDGE STREET, (west side) Uffculme 4/157 The Vicarage - 18.12.86 II Vicarage. Built 1835 to designs by William Burgess, a significant local architect. Plastered random rubble sandstone; gable-ended slate roofs. Double-depth, central hall plan house, principal rooms to either side of entrance, the stairs giving off the hall to the right and leading to a first floor central landing, which serves the main bedrooms, each with their adjoining dressing rooms; a rear service wing has been demolished. Lateral, rear and axial stacks heat ground and first floor rooms, all with brick shafts. 2 storeys. Exterior Front: symmetrical, 3 bays, the centre bay projecting as a 2 storey porch, narrower than the flanking bays. First floor with 2-light casement windows with transoms, 4-panes per light with margin panes, all under timber hood moulds. Ground floor: side bays with French windows, otherwise the details as above; central doorway with depressed ogee arch, also with a wooden hoodmould, double, half-glazed doors with overlight. The porch has a pretty plaster ribbed vault with the date (1835), and is lit from the sides by small lancets. Left-hand (garden) elevation: 3 bays, symmetrical, the outer bays separately gabled (each with quatrefoil in gable wall), 2-light casement windows (as front) to first floor, French window (as front) to ground; the centre bay very narrow, with single light window to first floor, French window below, the details in all respects similar to the other windows. Rear: plain, altered, with a shallow central turret that looks like a later addition. Right-hand elevation: asymmetrical, with 12-pane hornless sash windows, and a tall 2-centred-pointed window to stairs, also with a 12-pane hornless sash, and intersecting glazing bars in head. Interior: Contemporary fittings intact: dog-leg curved stair with stick balusters, plaster cornices to main rooms; timber and polished limestone chimneypieces. Uffculme Vicarage is a good house of its date, and (with the exception of the rear wing), remarkably intact both internally and externally, it is probably the least altered of this architect's domestic works.
