HAUGHTON GREEN 1. (North Side) 5195 Butler House and The Rectory [Formerly listed as No 1 (The Rectory)] NZ 3015 4/149 28.4.52. I GV

2. Originally all the Rectory, Butler House is the range nearest the road and has a west part of early-mid C15 and an east part of early-mid C18. West part of 2 storeys, 4 bays, the 2 right bays covered by an C18 projecting front range of pinkish brick with high pitched pantiled roof. The mediaeval part is of stone rubble, pebble-dashed. Some early C19 sash windows with glazing bars and one complete 2-light stone traceried window on 1st floor. In left return a double window, many-moulded and chamfered but with tracery replaced by sash windows with glazing bars. A small lancet window is on north return of this section. Right part of 2 storeys, 5 windows, old pinkish brick with some rubble stone walling behind. Gauged flat red brick arches with keystones to sash windows with glazing bars in near-flush box frames. Both sections have steeply pitched pantiled roofs, the left part higher, probably once thatched. In the angle between the 2 builds a 2-storey C19 and modern wood bow window. Inside the C18 part door and window woodwork largely complete, including lock plates, also some panelling and dado rails. In the mediaeval part are remains of 2 more stone windows with paired cusped heads; and a stone fireplace with hollow chamfered wide segmental arch and splayed and chamfered jambs. One bay remains of a C15 crown post and collar-purlin roof, the crown post having longitudinal braces to the purlin and transverse braces to the tie beam. The Rectory consists of 2 parallel ranges running north from the back of the mediaeval part of Butler House. The west range is of the 2nd quarter of the C18, the east is early C19. East (entrance) front of 2 storeys, 5 windows, wide proportions. Northernmost window on each floor is a blank panel. Pinkish brick. Replaced sash windows with glazing bars in near-flush box frames under flat gauged brick arches. Round headed landing window. Two Yorkshire sashes at ground floor left. Six-panel door with cornice head and oblong fanlight holding a projecting, glazed lamp-holder. Low, curved projection on north return. Garden front of 2 storeys, 7 windows; pinkish brick with roof renewed in modern ridged tiles, 2 centre and 2 end chimneys. Gauged flat brick arches to 1st floor C18 sash windows with glazing bars in near-flush box frames and ground floor early C19 recessed sash windows with delicate glazing bars. Inside, the study has original fielded panelling and dado rail. Drawing room to south has decoration of early C19 with paterae in doorcase angles and a Tuscan screen across the north end. Graceful early C19 staircase with spiral ended handrail. Rooms have reeded flat plaster cornices with medallions at intervals. Series of round arches across hall. Range of outbuildings to north, mostly one storey, of roughly-coursed rubble with brick dressings; and a late C19 red brick upper storey added over north end. Varied openings, roofs partly pantiled and artly of modern tile. North-east angle of main Rectory cut-away and corbelled out above.
