NUNEATON AND BEDWORTH MANOR COURT ROAD SP 39 SE (east side) 2/82 St Mary's Vicarage - II

House (formerly a vicarage). Circa 1876, designed by Clapton Rolfe. Random rubble sandstone with limestone dressings; brick stacks; tiled gable-end roofs. Basically an irregular T-shaped plan with central stair, of 2 storeys plus attic, with a single-storeyed service wing placed within the NE angle. All elevations markedly asymmetrical, the whole design tightly disciplined. Entrance front (W): 3 unequal bays; entrance (with depressed moulded arch under emphatic hood-mould) and 3-light traceried window above, under a separate gable with barge-boarding, stand flush with the tall stack (slightly projecting, with set-offs to right side only, stone to 1st floor sill level, tall brick shafts above) together form the central bay; canted storeyed 1:3:1 bay window with parapet to left, blank walling to right. Garden front (S): 2 components: firstly the gable end of the entrance range with 2-light window to gable-wall, 7-light window under hood-mould (2 lights deliberately left blank) to 1st floor, canted 1:4:1 bay with parapet and a (modified) garden door to right; secondly the side elevation of the rear range with low-set eaves leaving room only for a canted bay window with parapet. Rear elevation (E): large gabled wing, a single light window to gable-wall, a 7-light window under hood-mould (one light-blank) to lst floor, the ground floor obscured by contemporary single-storeyed stable range. Services with 2-light window and simple doorway. N elevation: services project (with 5-light N window); internal porch in angle with main (entrance) range (with moulded timber arched-braces, the internal walls of brick, the door with strap hinges and side light). Gable end of main range with 3-light window to gable wall, 7-light window (4 lights blank) to 1st floor, and 5-light window to ground (2 lights blank), all under hood moulds. Windows throughout with stone mullions. Ridge stacks with shaped shafts and caps; some pots survive. Interior: largely intact (although fireplaces removed) . Internal porch with good planked door with decorated hinges, lock and bolts, and traceried side lights. Other internal doors mostly panelled, some half-glazed under canted heads set within pointed arches. Hall with tripartite arched screen, the staircase (dog-leg) with moulded rail and turned urn-balusters. Tiled floor; flags to services (which retain their plan form). Overall: an excellent design for a moderate-sized house surviving substantially intact with carefully composed massing, varied elevations, good and unusual detailing (eg: the blind window lights), and good use of materials. It is an important work of Clapton Rolfe, an Oxfordshire architect of considerable importance and originality. He also designed the first stage of the rebuilding of the adjacent St Mary's church (qv ref 2/59).
