More tea, vicar? The persistent appeal of the parsonage
Added about a year ago by Sacristy Press. OUT NOW: Traditional English rectories and vicarages have been neglected by the Church in the post-war years, but have become highly desirable to property buyers, and are now cherished by their new private owners. The Old Rectory is about these fine houses, their place in English history and the history of the Church, their architecture, their architects, their contribution to our culture, and their sometimes eccentric occupants—both clerical and secular.
This new edition includes additional material and 68 plates most of which are in full colour. People shrink from it, going to painful lengths to preserve the appearance of youth and acting as though they had never grown up. Together, the words conjure up a vision of the most desirable of house types for affluent living.
The Old Rectory has status, but not, in this democratic age, to an off-putting extent. As this book shows, it may be in any architectural style though not, since the great age of rectory building had finished by the Second World War, the hideous ones : estate agents will hope for Queen Anne, though Regency and Victorian are more numerous. Whatever the period, the house will have good-sized rooms, high ceilings and architectural presence.
The large garden can be developed into a horticultural paradise, while leaving room for tennis courts and swimming pool. Offices and games rooms can be made out of the stables. Old rectories are companionably part of their villages, but remote from the modern estates that have been built on the edge. Douglas Murray.
