II

Former rectory. Thoroughly rebuilt in 1823 at a cost of £1,000 (White's Devon, 1850) but probably preserving some of the C17 fabric in the rear wing; late C20 renovations. Stone rubble, colourwashed and rendered to the front block; hipped slate roofs; end stacks to main block with brick shafts, similar end stack to wing. Plan: L plan, the front block 2 rooms wide with a central passage containing the stair; rear right service wing containing kitchen at right angles to the main block. Exterior: 2 storeys, the main block with a cellar. Symmetrical 3-bay front with C20 panelled front door in the centre with a fanlight with spoke glazing all within a recessed round-headed arch. Fenestration of 12-pane timber sashes. Single-storey lean-to at left end, C20 conservatory at right end. The rear wing has an attractive symmetrical elevation facing the rear courtyard; central doorway below early C19 2- centred arched stair window with intersecting glazing bars and some stained glass in the margin panes; 12-pane timber sash windows. The wing has been extended to the rear and a bread oven projects into the store-room at the left end. Evidence of blocked windows suggests a pre 1823 core. Interior: Stair with stick balusters and a ramped wreathed handrail; some 1823 joinery. The kitchen fireplace has 2 bread ovens. 1684 copy of 1684 glebe terrier in possession of owner refers to 4 under and 4 upper rooms.
