6/159 Coach house, stables and servant
cottages approx. 140m south-west
of Escot

Coach house, stables and servant cottages, now used partly as a workshop, part
offices and part cottages. Probably 1838, contemporary with Escot (q.v.)
incorporating 2 C18 cottages. Flemish bond brick; brick stacks and chimneyshafts;
partly roofed in slate, part in red tile.
Plan: 4 ranges enciose acqurtyard and there is a carriageway entrance through
the south wing. The north wing is the coach house. The east wing was stables but
part has been converted to a cottage. More stables in the front (south) wing and
these are now offices. These 3 wings face into the courtyard but the west wing
faces outwards and is made up of 3 cottages with 3 axial stacks and one south end
stack. The centre cottage appears to have been made by uniting 2 C18 cottages.
2 storeys.
Exterior: the carriageway has tall elliptical arches and contains a pair of full
height plank doors. The coach house has a 6-bay arcade of tall elliptical arches
springing from stone imposts (the centre 2 have been knocked together). The
original stable windows are round-headed casements with glazing bars and the door-
ways have fanlights. The west side (the cottages) has an irregular 7-window front
with an eighth window, a tall round-headed window at the left end. Mostly C19 and
C20 casements with glazing bars but including some sash windows; 6, 9 and 12-pane
sashes. There are 3 doorways. The right one is a C19 6-panel door with a fanlight.
Interiors not inspected.
