Chatsworth House
Stables, now in various uses as restaurant, dwellings and for
storage. 1758-63 by James Paine, for the Fourth Duke of
Devonshire. Coursed squared rock-faced sandstone and ashlar.
Hipped Westmorland slate roofs. Various ashlar stacks. Plain
ground floor sill band, impost band and moulded cornice. Four
ranges around a square courtyard. Two storeys. The main front
faces west and is of 1-3-1-3-1 bays. Impressive entrance bay
has four attached columns with thick bands of cyclopic
rustication, supporting the entablature and cornice and blind
attic with coat of arms (carved by Henry Watson) under a
pedimented gable, flanked by festoons. Clock and bell turret
above in the form of a domed lantern with round-arched openings
on each side. Tall round-arched rusticated entrance arch,
flanked by round-arched glazing bar sashes with half-domed
niches above, set within rectangular openings with lintels of
long voussoirs. On either side a three-bay round-arched
rusticated blind arcade, each bay containing a glazing bar sash
under flat arch with pronounced voussoirs. Small segment headed
glazing bar sashes above. Square end pavilions have a similar
round-arched bay flanked by niches and beneath open pediments.
Plain ashlar attics above with a small sash by the apex of the
pediment, and a pyramid roof. North elevation principally of
1-3-1-3-1 bays, but with an additional four bays to the east.
It continues the same theme as to west but has a simpler
entrance feature of large round-arch flanked by two tiers of
sashes, the lower round arched. Blind attic above the cornice,
with moulded coping and a line of sixteen ball finials. Plainer
south elevation to the gardens, of 1-3-1-3-1 bays. Rusticated
round-arches only to the centre and pavilion bays. Irregular
fenestration to ground floor. Plain first floor band and row of
small segment headed windows to first floor. Within the
courtyard there is a rusticated open ground floor arcade of
round arches. Ashlar above with small glazing bar sashes.
Tripartite entrance features with all over rustication and pairs
of ball finials above the cornice. The Gardens and Park are
included on the Gardens Register at Grade I.
