5/144 Stable block at Trehill

- II

Stable block at Trehill (q.v.), 2 of the 3 ranges converted to cottages in the 1950s.
1833 (date on gate-pier); red sandstone wih slate roofs. Gothic style, a contrast to
the Greek Revival house rebuilt 5 years earlier.
Plan: 3 ranges round courtyard with tall embattled walls and a gateway on the fourth
side, the embattled walling returning to conceal the stable block from the east. The
west and south ranges have been converted to cottages.
Exterior: Grand entrance on the north side, the embattled walls buttressed with
coping below the battlementing and coped merlons and embrasures. Large square
section gate-piers with trefoil-headed sunk mouldings and hipped caps, On the left
return (the rear of the east range) a tall embattled wall disguises the stable block
from the park to the east of Trehill. The east range is an unconverted carriage
house, slightly broken forward and gabled to the front in the centre with kneelers.
Central front door with a segmental-headed fanlight flanked by segmental-headed
doorways converted to windows ; 2 first floor 2-light louvred windows ; segmental
arched window with Gothick glazing bars in the centre. The left-hand bay has a
Diocletian window on the ground floor and a blind ribbon recess on the first floor.
The right-hand bay has a gabled attic dormer with kneelers and a 2-light window, a
blind ribbon recess on the first floor and a C20 doorway on the ground floor. The
west range is the most altered ; gabled to the front in the centre and probably
originally symmetrical with a round-headed loft door surviving in the central gable,
and 2 round-headed doorways in the centre (both blocked and converted to windows) on
either side of a sqaure-headed doorway, also converted to a window. C20 door and
windows to the right, C20 window to the left.
In spite of the alterations this group retains considerable architectural interest
and is a foil to Trehill House, listed grade II*.
