Rectory, now house. Probably C16 origin, with alterations of the C17; extended in
circa early C18, with later alterations of later C18 and C19, with C20 alterations.
Rendered stone rubble; partly slate hung; granite dressings. Slate roof, hipped over
the main range, with axial stacks with rendered shafts, the stack to right formerly a
gable end stack of the original building. Rear wings have stacks to sides.
Plan: This was originally a 3-room and passage plan; the lower end room to left
heated by an axial stack backing on to the passage; the hall to right of the passage
heated by a rear lateral stack, and the inner room to right heated by gable end
stack. Probably in the C17, a shallow 2-storey porch was added to the front of the
passage, and a stair tower to the front of the hall. In circa early C18, a major
rebuilding took place; a one-room addition was made to the front of the lower end
room, as a parallel range. The ground floor of the C17 porch was converted as a
dairy. An addition of one-room plan was made to the right end, which also included a
stair. At the rear, an addition of one-room plan was made to right and left, each of
2 storeys with hipped roof, forming a symmetrical U-plan on the garden front.
Probably in the early - mid C19, the space between these 2 wings was infilled by a
single storey addition, of one room plan. In the original range, the rooms were
divided, with a rear lateral corridor leading to a rear service stair to left, to the
rear of the original lower end room. The whole of the early range was re-roofed as
one in the C19, and a new entrance made directly into the original inner room, which
became a large entrance hall. There probably would have been a partition wall
between the passage and the hall, probably removed in C18.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical front. The present entrance (into the former inner
room) has hollow-moulded granite jambs, and a lintel formerly from a 3-light granite
window, with stoolings for mullions remaining; this forms a recessed porch, with
double panelled doors and a 12-pane light. To the right is the addition of early
C18, containing a stair tower and a room to end right; the stair tower has a pitched
roof and upper 6-pane Gothic light. There is a hipped roof over a narrow projecting
bay to end right, with 12-pane sash at ground floor, and 12-pane sash of early C18
with thick glazing bars at first floor. To the left of the main entrance is the
stair tower, with pitched roof and C20 single light at ground and first floor. To
the left, narrow 2-storey gabled porch, with 2-light casement at ground floor with
iron stanchions (lighting the dairy), 2-light C20 casement at first floor. There is
a parallel range to front left, which has a single storey lean-to added to the front.
At the left side, the front parallel range has a 3-light 12-pane casement at ground
floor, and 2-light 8-pane casement with L hinges at first floor. The front lean-to
has a C20 window. The side of the main range has a door, small 6-pane light above
the door and tall 10-pane light at upper level to left, inserted to light the service
stair. To left, the rear wing has stack. At the right side, ground floor left has
early C19 12-pane sash, first floor C20 window, and first floor left a narrow round-
headed light. To right, in the wing, a 2-light window with trefoil heads to lights,
of C19. The rear is all slate-hung. The wings to right and left are each of 2
storeys. The wing to right has C20 window at ground floor and 12-pane sash at first
floor; wing to left has C20 window at ground and first floor. At first floor the
main range has 2 C20 windows and is asbestos slate-hung; rear lateral hall stack.
The addition between the two wings has a 2-span roof behind a parapet wall; C20
French window, C20 window and central single light with trefoil head.
Interior: Inside the C17 porch, there is a granite doorway with basket arch and large
roll-mouldings, pintles remaining from earlier door. The ground floor of the porch
was converted as a dairy, with slate floor and shelves, and wooden shelf on shaped
brackets. The central room in the original range has slate floor; partition walls
removed; to the left of the doorway is a single light splayed reveal and slate cill.
To the rear is the lateral corridor of the C19; this gives access to the central rear
room between the 2 wings, with has double panelled doors with quatrefoils in the top
panels. The room has a barrel vault ceiling, with moulded plaster cornice remaining.
The original lower end room has a slate floor, fireplace blocked. Cast iron and
brass pump, still in full working order. Dog-leg service stair inserted to the rear
of the lower end. The addition to the front left was probably originally an unheated
stable, now converted as part of the house. The stair has been removed fron the C17
stair tower, now a small room at ground and first floor. There is a third stair, of
late C18, to front right, a dog-leg, with stick balusters. To front right, the C18
room has a small closet to front, and panelled shutters to windows. All the
fireplaces in the house have been blocked.
