Listing Text

The following building shall be added to the list:-

TG 03 NE
The Old Rectory
2/10000 and attached walls
and stable block

House. Dated 1849 on the entrance porch which also bears the Hobart arms and initials. Brick
in Flemish bond with brick stacks and tile roofs. Two and three storeys, scattered fenestration.
The main family block having two projecting bays to the south and garden fronts; the service
wing in an appropriately modest style ranging to the north and terminating in a gable-facing
cross wing with single-storey outbuilding to north face. Gable-facing stable block to the north
in a matching style, linked to the service wing by walls and gateway. Strongly asymmetrical and
picturesque composition in the Tudor Revival style. The entrance porch of particular note,
liable-facing with pinnacles and carved stone aedicule to diaphragm arch. Stepped and pinnacled
gables to projecting bays; the numerous stacks terminating in clustered, ornamented shafts. The
details were inspired by the local, late medieval building tradition, and are to be found echoed
in several authentic medieval structures nearby. Doors of original design. One leaded casement
light of original design to peak of gable on east front. Interior: commodious stair hall rising to
first floor, with staircase of original design. Carved stone fireplaces to most rooms on ground
floor and doorcases with Gothic-styled mouldings. Of special note is the flat panelled ceiling
to the drawing room facing the south garden.
