Rectory, now house with estate office. Late C18 with earlier origins and
early-mid C19 and C20 additions. Coursed squared stone, Welsh slate roof. 2
and 3 storeys, 5-bay main range with 2-storey, 1 x 2-bay C19 range added to west
end, and single-storey, 2-bay C20 range (not of special interest) added to east
end. Garden front: main range: the 3 right-hand bays are 3-storeyed, the 2
left-hand bays 2-storeyed and projecting under a catslide roof so that facade is
level with that of the C19 addition. On the ground floor, each of the
right-hand bays has a French window and the left-hand bays a tall 12-pane sash.
Upper floors have 16-pane sashes. Openings have keyed lintels except for the
top-floor windows which are set under eaves; the windows have projecting cills.
Shaped kneeler and ashlar coping to right gable. End stacks, the top of the
left one rebuilt in white brick. The added block on the left has quoins, a
16-pane sash with plain stone lintel and projecting cill to each floor, and a
hipped roof. Rear: main range. The masonry of the left bay and of the 1st
floor of the rest is herringbone-tooled, suggesting earlier origins. The left
bay projects and has a 16-pane sash on each floor. The next bay has a gabled
porch with small 2-light window, shaped kneelers, coping, and door in right
return; to its right is a small, square, chamfered window, low down, with a
blocked window above. To right again a 16-pane sash and a blocked window, the
former, along with two 12-pane sashes on the 1st floor, having a flat arch and
projecting cill. Left return, C19 addition: two tall, unequally-hung 15-pane
sashes to ground floor and 12-pane sashes above all with plain lintels and
projecting cills; end of tie-rods at lst-floor level.
