GV II

Vicarage, now hotel. 1850s, extended early C20 and 1989. Killas rubble walls with granite dressings; steep dry Delabole slate roofs; axial stone stacks over original cross wing and towards right another stack over parallel rear roof and axial stack towards right. U-shaped plan, since the addition of early C20 wing on the right: original plan had 2 front rooms with entrance hall between. Gothic Revival style. Single storey plus attics; 4 bays with flanking gabled wings. Gabled hood over arched doorway; relieving arches over 2-light trefoil-headed window to left and 3-light trefoil-headed window to right; 2-light plate-tracery window to first floor of left-hand gable. Similar arched gables over attic dormers which have original casements. C20 wing has 2-window gable end. INTERIOR: original straight-flight stair with trefoil-headed balustrade; pointed-arched stone doorway to rear of passage; original pointed-arched serving hatch between original right-hand room and kitchen behind and moulded plaster ceiling bands to front rooms. First floor not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: rear wall adjoins at right-angles to rear and has pointed-arched doorway and granite coping with roll moulding. Probably designed by the then incumbent, Reverend William Haslam, who was a friend of the noted ecclesiological architect William White and who designed the Church of St George(qv): this vicarage reflects the influences of White and other ecclesiological architects such as Street who both had worked in Cornwall by the early 1850s. Included for group value.
